Yellow House, Blue Door

Christie Palmer
Christie Palmer
Known for organically integrating landscape and abstraction, Christie Palmer’s acrylic paintings originate from a reverence for the beauty in nature. For her, skies are limitless; with expansive windows facing the mountains, there is an ever-changing landscape outside her studio. Sedona’s monsoon season brings impressive clouds, thunderous skies, and sunsets begging to be painted. Striving to create distinctly original work, Palmer’s observation of the world is anything but ordinary. Whether an expansive landscape or a small object, each is taken to heart initiating a “personal and inspirational journey” to the completed work of art. Palmer reflects “it is that process when complete which captures and stirs the emotion and spirit of the art lover.”

Inspired by a visit to the small island of Fiskebackskil, Sweden, I was struck by the impact of a charming yellow house with it’s blue door. I felt it needed to become a painting, however, painting it as a simple sweet home didn’t express its impact on me. The color and feeling had to be bigger and more curious, and thus it stands the way it is.
