“The Singing Spring” by Ariana Richards
A strong advocate for the environment, Ariana believes that art can deepen our relationship with the natural world. “If I could, I would take each viewer along to my favorite places along the seacoast or in the mountains, to the secret places of nature.” Regarding her figurative work she says, “I especially enjoy painting figures out of doors because of the beautiful, transient effects of sunlight on the subject.”
At age 25, Ariana is already an award-winning oil painter. She is known for her plein-air landscapes as well as her evocative portraits and figure paintings. Ariana’s paintings have been exhibited internationally and she counts among her collectors local and international corporations. Ariana’s magazine credits include feature articles in national art magazines such as Southwest Art and American Artist including her art being showcased on the cover of American Artist magazine.
Ariana is represented by Lee Youngman Galleries, Calistoga, CA. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America and is a Mentor Member of the California Art Club.
Ariana currently lives and pursues her art in Oregon. For more information visit www.galleryariana.com
