“I have lived and painted in Bastrop County for over thirty-four years. My studio in Smithville also serves as a private gallery and classroom for students. The ranges of subjects for my paintings are wide: fields, farms, woodlands, creeks, rivers, country roads, small town alleys and cities near and far. The painters I especially admire are classic; Monet, Sargent, Bonnard, Hopper…knowing these artists may tell the viewer something about my own work. My practices are very “painterly” that is they are direct and broadly conceived paintings." ~Wanda Gamble
