By observing the details in everyday surroundings, I find a wealth of ideas: from the smallest of sweet peas on my garden trellis to the rhythm of color across the Arizona landscapes. I feel very blessed to be able share myself with others through my art.
Capturing the colors of nature in both sunshine and shadows, Catherine Sickafoose pulls the viewer into the soul of the painting, blending negative brushwork – using the white of the paper rather than white paint – with glazed transparent watercolors for vibrant representations of landscapes, florals and still life paintings in light and shadow. Painting from her own photographs or still life compositions, Catherine works in either her Flagstaff or Phoenix, Arizona studios.
