Ponderosa Latex Enamel Painting on Gallery Wrapped Canvas by Fort Collins, Colorado Artist Lisa Cameron Russell

Layers of color create visual and tactile dimension. The image can be viewed as representational or abstract depending on the viewers’ distance from the painting. At first glance, the style is loose and whimsical, yet the painting yields detail and depth.
