Terry Boutelle

The Forest can evoke contradictory feelings:  mystery, expectation, danger, protection, terror, peacefulness, freedom, confinement.  My work explores these feelings within a sense of place in a unique forest environment.  Color plays a part in creating the mood of the forest image.  I also work with layers of matte medium and acrylic paint, creating a palpable sense of depth and distance and evoking a feeling of mystery and longing.
