Romona Youngquist’s work can be recognized by the picturesque barns and country houses, bright pops of color, and strong brushstrokes that make up her idyllic country scenes. The works from her newest show are no exception, allowing you to travel from the congestion of city life, to the serenity of the country.
Although Youngquist uses her surroundings in Oregon as a primary inspiration, each scene feels timeless and place-less, as if it could be right out a story book, or your favorite memory of home. The tension in her deliberate, impressionistic brushstrokes resolves within the serene images of rural fields and barns, resulting in a dramatic landscape full of tension, intrigue and beauty.
Her show will open on February 20, 2014 with a special artists reception from 6-9 pm. The show will then hang in the gallery through March 17th. Be sure to stop by and see these wonderful works in person, before it’s too late.
