|Putnam Creek, Early Spring by Deborah Angilletta|
Previously educated in graphic design, she often constructs her ideas in Photoshop before she takes a brush to paper. Her subject matter is the landscape in her immediate environment, which to her, never grows old. Although Deborah tends to be a very detailed oriented painter she is challenging herself to become more minimalist like her idols Marc Bohne, Doug Fryer, George Innes and Richard Schmid.
When asked how she knows when a work is completed, Deborah responds:
“When you can’t really add anything more that is supporting what your idea was, it’s time to stop. I notice when I start really slowing down on a painting that it’s time to step back and there’s a good chance I’m really close to being done at that point. I’ve ruined tons of paintings by not stopping soon enough.”
I hope you enjoy reading about Deborah. She has an exuberance for life and her art that is captivating and unusually inspiring.
