Her Website (click here).
Anna Good creates a romantic world of color and light; texture and beauty. Her paintings of scenic gardens and floral pathways convey a romantic view of the world she sees around her. Her unique palette knife layering technique of wet paint on wet paint gives her art distinctively rich texture and color to enhance its ethereal qualities. This romantic vision of life is a dynamic and evolving one that Anna has sought to share.
Nature and its interpretation by the artist to create beauty greatly inspire Anna’s work. She travels the world to draw inspiration from scenic landscapes, floral gardens, and koi ponds. During her travels she was inspired by Monet’s garden in Paris, Butchart gardens in British Columbia, Filoli gardens in California and most recently the gardens of Frederick Chopin’s birthplace outside of Warsaw. “I consider my work a visual diary of my experiences in the garden – a visual interpretation of the colors, textures and spirit. Gardens are not only a manifestation of man’s collaboration with nature but also an expression of the passion and dedication to create them.” Working in her garden, travel, exploration and discovery of new places of beauty are what make Anna tick and continually inspire her to paint.
Anna’s ability to create art uniquely rich in texture is what amazes admirers of her work. “My art is a visual reflection of nature with all its colors and textures. Engaging all the senses including the sense of touch is my goal.” Anna’s paintings have been described in this way:
“The thick and rich impasto wet on wet palette knife work of Anna Good appears as sculpture in two-dimensional format that uniquely arouses the sense of touch.”
