Alisha B Whitman
I am a watercolor and acrylic artist living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I love connecting with nature by exploring the outdoors with my family and then sharing those beautiful places and experiences with paint. Using enthusiastic colors and dynamic, calligraphic shapes, I strive to create landscape paintings that uplift and express joy by highlighting the goodness and beauty around us.
I started to create this "Rainy Trees" series during the horrible wildfires this summer. We were all worried and praying for rain, and I decided to paint those prayers. I nearly always paint from reference photos but this time, I relied on memories. I focused on the feeling of rainy days in the forest, of the rain dripping down, of shadowy silhouettes, of mist and moss and light shimmering through.
They will all be available when our Holiday Market goes live, November 20th - 22nd.
