Artist of the Month - Robynn Stewart
What is art for you?
I feel that I have "come home" to myself and finally found what had been hibernating for so long. I will keep painting and creating no matter what!
Although I always like to have at least 3 projects going on at once, I am currently working on a fun "Harry Potter-ish" painting for next Halloween. Spooky but funny!
My great grandfather, Aaron Draper Shattuck, N.A., (1830-1928) was a well known New England landscape artist of the White Mountain School. At age 29 he was the youngest person elected to the National Academy, and was also the inventor of the Shattuck Patented Stretcher key. I inherited the artistic genes and am extremely grateful to be able to pay tribute to him by following in his footsteps and producing paintings for others to enjoy.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Actually everywhere - Observing people, light, colors
What is your creative process?
Usually a "flash" of inspiration
Did your style change over the years? In which way?
I'm not sure I have a definite "style", but over the past few years the subject matter has only become more diverse. I never know what the next subject will be!
What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
Sitting down in front of the canvas and saying "OK, here goes!"
