Amelia’s paintings are reminiscent of early Monet paintings. Claude Monet was always searching for the best ways to use paint to describe light and surface. His early paintings best demonstrate the searching he was engaged in and if you know what to look for, you can find his moments of discovery. Viewers find the same pleasure in Amelia’s work, where her handling of paint and use of color bring us to the moment she had observed. Her searching and break-through moments are evident in the fresh body of work she has been compiling. Amelia’s eye for beauty is truly breath-taking.
