Wildlife in Oil
What do wildlife conservation and beautiful oil paintings have in common? That's an easy question to answer for acclaimed artist and wildlife conservationist, Sonia Reid. ''My goal,'' states Sonia, ''is to inspire and educate others through my passion for wildlife, nature and art. I travel to the wildest areas of Africa and North America to absorb the sights, sounds and scents and bring those experiences to life on canvas.''
Sonia's paintbrush is the tool she uses to safeguard the animals she loves. As an example of the artist's intense efforts to bring the life and energy of Nature's wild creatures into her artwork, the artist did not use horses from a local stable as models for her latest equine series. Instead, she has visited and revisited a herd of wild horses in northern Colorado until she knows them by name, learning each of their personalities so as to better portray them in her paintings.
You are invited to visit with Sonia as she works on her latest canvas at Horton Fine Art in Beaver Creek this Friday, Nov. 27th from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm.
