Em Herzstein, Landscape Painter, (Host Tracy Giles)

I make art in several locales: the coast of Maine, the mountains of Colorado, the coastal hills of Northern California, and a wind-swept bay in southern Baja, Mexico. I paint outdoors. Or indoors with a window–there have to be fresh feelings and images of the outdoors in me, which go into the painting. The textures and scents, the feel of the air, the color and light that are alive in the moment become part of the painting. One testimonials from a fan: “I have been collecting Em Herzstein’s work for almost seven years. Her landscapes are especially wonderful. She paints only after absorbing a particular scene and environment in depth, with an extraordinary eye for its contours, colors, shades and context. She starts with sketches on site, and then carefully creates works that envelop the viewer in the very essence of the place. The color, balance, composition and execution are exquisite. And her work ranges from realistic to impressionistic to abstract with equal skill.” Elliot Gerson Washington, D.C. and Aspen, Colorado
