WATERCOLOR ODYSSEY, "A PLACE TO REMEMBER" BY EMILY STEDMAN, RECONNECTS MEMORY AND EMOTION
The theme of my new show, A Place to Remember
, at the Donald Gallery in Dobbs Ferry, New York,
suggests the emotional state of being you feel when you have been affected by a special location you cant forget, no matter how long ago you were there.
Not content to simply record the reality of a location, my transparent watercolor paintings capture the feelings that are evoked when something familiar and well traveled suddenly appears fresh and new again. I find inspiration in memory and the everyday world. Italy, Ireland, England, and several States are some of the locations that I have painted to express a place etched in enduring memory.
