Ellen  Cramer profile picture

While I’ve been creating things my entire life as a way of self-expression and exploration, it wasn’t until middle age I began doing it with oil on canvas then eventually experimenting with other materials leading recently to oil on board. Initially I tried photo realism, but quickly found a more relaxed style that gave me more freedom to express and develop the mood and the use of unusual subjects such as cows gives me further freedom of expression. This is especially true with a palette knife and the imaginative use of color. As I paint, my own mood expression is developed with the intention of that being easily perceived by my viewers but also with the hope of stimulating their own interpretation and mood.
