Light is a key subject in the work of these three artists. Everly’s paintings are grounded in an intuitive response to observation. Light gives shape and texture to the structures in her landscapes. Inspired by years of painting en plein air, Lafuente captures the play of light across her floral still lifes like late afternoon sun across a landscape. McClellan, a professional gardener, literally paints light, calling it “beams and gleams of sun.” Her painting is informed by perception of atmospheric phenomena and the vibrations of energy beneath surface appearances.
