My paintings are a celebration of the ever-changing colors in the New England landscape. Using the framework of a landscape composition, I strive to paint with a rhythm which results in layers of color until the surface has a buzz that makes the landscape come alive. I like to experiment with the boundaries of color. The palette of my paintings usually begins as a mood, or a reflection of something I’ve seen, and evolves with the process of painting. My paintings are intended to have a powerful impact on the viewer, both from afar and close up, just as nature does.
Whitney Alexanderson Heavey loves painting the environment around her, whether it is the ocean, or a forest of trees or, simply, the feel of the air on a crisp autumn day.
