VIRGINIA E. PENDERGRASS "Moody Evening" 16 x 12" $ 840.
My representational oil paintings have lively brushwork and color for a contemporary impressionist interpretation. The pleasure of painting for me is discovery of light and shadow, color variations, merging of edges, and unique shapes through life study. The shape of a particular tree limb, the color of a particular pear in light and shadow. or lost edges in a dark corner, portray the mood or individuality of the subject.
