My mission is to capture time. Through painting I feel I can make the moment stand still, to make its beauty last, says British artist Rosalind Wise. She achieves this goal by creating fresh, lively, large-format paintings of gardens, meadows, wetlands, and other natural vistas. The pleasure is in the view, taking it in visually, the whole picture of what is in front of me.Many of Wises works are inspired by close study of gardens in the United Kingdom. She enjoys the contrasting colors, textures, and forms found in garden borders, and she strives to express their energy and scale. She often makes quick plein air sketches during her morning walks, recording the relationships of plants growing together naturally. Later, in her home studio, she works from her studies, collected specimens, and photographs.All of Pomegranates calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and manufactured by an FSC certified printer.
