Harriet’s paintings are expressive interpretations of the Tennessee landscape. She uses color and movement to capture the emotional and visual energy of nature. Some pieces are explorations into a real time and place. Others are involved in revealing the emotion and energy of a location through abstraction. All are an intensely personal response of the artist to the natural world.
Harriet works in a variety of medium: watercolor, pastel and acrylic. Her pastels and landscape watercolors are pleine aire paintings and are usually more direct. The acrylic paintings are studio paintings and are abstractions from nature.
