Trish Hurley's oil paintings are personal in size inviting the viewer to the intimacy of the moment and space. Her plein-air, atmospheric landscapes are inspired by her love for the outdoors and the ever-changing weather of New England. In each of her still life paintings, she defines a distinct ambiance. She strives to awaken all of the senses by capturing the dramatics of light and space.
