Northwest native Betsy Eby finds inspiration in the region’s natural phenomena. Her abstract paintings incorporate a soothing palette and subtly reference wildflowers, flowing water, migratory birds, frost covered leaves, and misty forests. A lifelong pianist, Eby’s brush strokes have a cadence and rhythm reminiscent of musical compositions and classical sonatas. By employing beeswax in her painting process, she slowly builds up the surfaces of her canvases, creating depth and texture that heighten the organic quality of her work.
