Christopher Hoppe, “Being one with Nature” (oil on canvas, 20x24"). Enjoying the ocean and the sun setting with the beautiful clouds.
Martina Sestakova, "The Love Inside You" (acrylic on yupo, 26x20"). A moment of solitude seems to be the moment when one can indeed notice - in a deep way - the love inside and around.
Terry Pellmar, "Alone" (digital painting, 18"x24"). For some, solitude can mean loneliness.
Judith Levine, "To Matins" (crayon on Fabriano 140Lb cold press paper, 4x5"). I was watching a documentary and was struct by her sense of stillness and the solitude of the convent.
Rosemary Behizadeh Yue, “Tranquility” (acrylic on canvas, 24x24”) painted with palette knife. There’s something renewing about watching the sun glint through the trees and filter through the leaves.
Maria-Elena Lazarte, "Flowering Crabapple Tree" (plein air painting at the Brookside Gardens, oil on linen panel, 12x9”). Solitude is a moment to appreciate the beauty of nature.
Jean Fin, "Dream Studio" (oil on canvas, 16x20"). This is what comes to my mind when I contemplate my ideal art studio. The inside hardly matters when the surroundings are so lovely.
