Nancy R. Chalut
Through the medium of oil on canvas, I paint in the realism style of the Renaissance Masters. In observation of our natural environment, I seek to discover an anthropomorphic relationship. An eclectic array of subject matter is used; my attraction being the intensities of colour and its duplication process. The subject selected is then placed in the tense confinement of canvas parameters in reflection and note of habitat loss.
