“I’m endlessly inspired to discover and become familiar with the variations and nuances of this landscape. Pastels are my chosen medium. They allow me the ability to use bold flourishing strokes as well as subtle blending to convey mood and motion in the composition. Pastels encourage my exploration of vibrant and colorful expression.”

BONNIE ZAHN GRIFFITH
My love of the landscape prompts me to paint it, and I look for a story to tell when I paint. I work to create art into which the viewer can step into, finding and experiencing their own story. If that happens, then I have done my job. “From the ground up, the stretch of the landscape, the embrace of the colors, the magnitude of the terrain and the physical earth all shape my vision from my heart; so my love of the land.”

As a contemporary landscape painter, my work is a conscious play of mood, light and color, but as a naturalist raised and rooted in the diverse landscapes of western America, a painting means more than that to me. Each location is an encounter of spirit with the land, the trees, and the waters that have always given me a sense of connection and order.
