Creating sentiments to unite us all.

Nancy T. Van Ness Artist…

    Blank canvas...raw paint on the palette...where will it take me?

    Who knows...what's going on in the
universe...the planet...your world?

    Explore and see.

Communicating my feelings of joy, happiness and sadness through
paint is my goal. The meditative feel of moving paint around a canvas and the
therapeutic application of color is what I crave. 

     I'm drawn to
impressionist painting, inspired by Post Impressionism. Van Gogh, Renoir,
Lucian Freud are my biggest inspirations. 

     Showing the viewer part
of the story and letting them form their own impression is important to me.
Animal and figurative portraits give voice to some of the most important
emotions of the human condition.
