Once a year Sheila Delimont packs up her car and drives to Santa Fe on a trip she refers to as her “painting safari.” She is deeply drawn to the Southwest’s dramatic skies, strong light, and bold landscapes.
Says Sheila, “The Southwest offers both a challenge and a pleasure to paint. I use a bright color palette and a variety of painting tools, from palette knives to squeegees, to capture the feeling of these striking landscapes. Through my paintings you can follow my latest expedition to the Southwest. I hope you enjoy my interpretations of its arresting summer storms and bright fall colors as well as the magic vistas of Santa Fe, Ghost Ranch and the Chama River Valley.”
