In Her Own Words – Artist Holly Lombardo…

I guess you could say I’ve been a painter my whole life…. I just didn’t know it. I am a self taught artist who has painted with watercolors for almost 15 years, and more recently, acrylics. I started painting as a hobby in college after a rigorous science curriculum trumped a desire to express myself creatively.

As my career has changed and free time has become more available, I have painted creatively almost daily now for several years, and started to show my work to the public since Spring 2007. I now graciously have more free time to paint subjects that inspire me. I enjoy capturing light and shadow, and always challenge myself to try something new and improve my own technique. I find inspiration in nature as well as familiar objects, and continue to be amazed at how effortlessly paint will glide over a paper surface or canvas, depositing colors and implying shapes. My impressionist goals are obvious.

I am inspired by the masters, including Sargent, Hopper, Wyeth and of course, Monet, Cassatt and Renoir, to name a few, and follow many contemporary artists whose work inspires me to work harder and learn more. Painting is a passion, and I find now that when I look out the window, I am already thinking about which colors I would use to capture the sunlight on a tree, or a shadow on the snow. It is a passion, and I learn something new with each painting that I do.

I am a member of the Concord Art Association (CAA) and the National Watercolor Society (NWS) as well as the Natick Artists Open Studio (NAOS) group.
