Fair Weather Friend 11" x 14" Acrylic on Stretched Canvas Artist: Heather Bergstrom This painting features a tried-and-true rustic boat that seems to have had many adventures in the open sea. The hull is a cheerful blue with a white stripe and a red keel that has a weathered effect. The sail has exquisite detailing on the folds of the fabric. The sandy beach is a play on warm and cool shadows. Unframed. Ready to hang. Original design by Cinnamon Cooney, The Art Sherpa. www.theartsherpa.com Design used with permission.

My art is an expression of the joy and wonder I experience as I go through my personal journey in life. I often choose to paint or draw poignant scenes which translate to archetypal feelings of contentment, nostalgia, and/or joie de vivre for the viewer. My inspiration comes from childhood memories, nature, history; just about anything that exudes positive emotions, or simply piques my curiosity. To quote Henri Matisse, "What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter, ... for example, a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue…” (“Matisse in His Own Words.” Quotes by Henri Matisse, www.henri-matisse.net/quotes.html.).

I especially enjoy creating art that tells a story. Whether I am working on a charcoal drawing or an acrylic painting, I enjoy watching the very heart and soul of my subject appear before me. I love experiencing the narrative as it changes and deepens every time I create.
