  Crista Pisano         

"It is vital for a landscape painter to study outdoors in order to fully understand how to interpret nature.  I am very grateful that I was taught this at an early age.  The ability to experience light, value, color, and atmospheric changes within nature firsthand has been crucial in my development as a landscape painter.  The unpredictability of light phenomenon during each outing is the most exciting part of each painting I produce.  These phenomena and other changes in nature force me to make important decisions about the mood and composition of every one of my works.  It is the consistent study of natural elements and ever-changing atmospheric conditions that keep me returning to the outdoors and ultimately applying it to canvas."
