Living rural puts me close to nature, inviting new painting inspiration each day. Working with horses and livestock, exploring the forests and rivers or simply watching the brilliance of a setting sun continually fuels my artistic spirit. These moments and others like them are what I share with you through my art.
Acrylic is my medium of choice, as it is versatile and adaptable like nature. I use colorful layers and splashes of paint to produce depth and texture, giving each subject its own character.
What nature has awakened inside, I express by painting. The feelings and emotions of my experience are reinterpreted on canvas, bringing the moment to life. Through this interpretive expression, I work to inspire in others a connection with nature that ignites their soul.
“Colorist” is the term used most often when referring to Lanie Frick painter. Her use of color infuses subjects of ranch life, horses, livestock and the supporting landscape with light and mood. Lanie’s painting style is one of intuitive expression where realistic subjects show movement and life by vivid notes of impressionism.
