Oil Paintings by Deliece Blanchard
“I am a landscape painter who loves nature, the color and viscosity of oil paint, and the mysterious communication that occurs through art. My first career was as a musician, and musical elements influence my paintings. The effect of certain colors side by side, together, create a vibration, or harmonic effect much like a chord progression which can move me emotionally, and I’m unable to explain it. Although the subject of my painting may reference the real world, I’m influenced by painters who have a distinctive painterly style of realism, eg. Van Gogh, Richard Diebenkorn, and Fairfield Porter.” – Deliece Blanchard
