Elisabeth P. Salberg

Auburn, ME

I began painting in 2013 after retiring from a long career as a Registered Nurse. Nature, light, color, form and texture have always fascinated me, and the beauty of Maine constantly confronts me. I enjoy photographing places in Maine that speak to me, and then, focusing on color, light and shadow, I paint the scene as I remember it, trying to convey to the viewer the mood that the scene presented to me. I particularly enjoy working with the fluidity of oil paint on canvas rather than board, and the challenge of mixing colors from a very limited palette.
