Artist of the Week (3/4): Ainsley F-W.

This photo was taken in Maine by my grandpa, who sent it to me because of the gorgeous colors in the sky and the snowy trees. I was in awe and I loved the look of the dark trees against the pastel sky. I chose to paint this photo because it made me feel closer to my grandpa, and it reminded me of how fun it is to paint colorful water.

This photo was taken by my sister at Fallen Leaf Lake in South Lake Tahoe. My family has a teeny tiny cabin on Fallen Leaf, and I have been going there since I was 5 months old. More than half of the land surrounding the lake is desolate wilderness, with many amazing animals, trees, wildflowers, and much more. If you look closely at the photo, you can see me on a paddle board! I think I might add that in when I touch up the painting 🙂

I was mostly drawn to this photo because of the vibrant reds, and I remember how ridiculously calm the lake was that night; it was UNREAL. I can’t wait to get back to the wilderness and spend my days out on the water.

Every week I go on a big walk with my Mom around our neighborhood. We basically do the exact same route each time, staying outside for hours. We leave our house in the daylight, continue walking as the sun sets, and come home in the darkness.

This photo is from a house on a street called Bellevue (beautiful view!). We walk past this house every time, stopping to gasp at its beauty. I can’t get over the trees and their gnarled curvature, and I really wanted to paint the view as a tribute to my Mama and our walk.
