Tears for those we love. Tears for those we lost.

Donna Lutz VanderPlas's avatar Donna Lutz VanderPlas

Donna Lutz VanderPlas is a visual artist who is influenced by everyday life, people and nature, colors and light. She feels compelled to tell her story by using watercolor and graphite pencil by starting with a basic image. Her vision comes alive as the brush touches the paper with color and light. The creative process begins with a drawing as she contemplates the colors, black being the focal color while making gray paint on the white paper. In this case, the color black was applied to each area of the rose paintings. Light and shadow create ambiance and aura on the roses. The color yellow is lightly painted on the small rose symbolizing hope and happiness.
