With Julia Sutliff’s small oil paintings, it’s as if you’re right there in the landscape. In this collection, titled Swimming in Eden, Sutliff presents plein air paintings so fresh and impressionistic that you can almost feel the spring breeze and sunlight or the autumn chill and dampness on your skin. Throughout the seasons, she searches out pockets of nature near her home in the sprawling suburbs north of Baltimore where she can immerse herself in the experience of being in nature. Painting with swift, playful strokes, she captures its colors, lighting, mood and movement.
