The Sinks in Limestone Canyon has been one of my favorite landscapes to do for ten years. I have visited it countless times, it has a front vertical side and a more sloping back side. I can only go with the Irvine Ranch Conservancy docents on scheduled times. All are scheduled and supervised by IRC (Irvine Ranch Conservancy) nature guides. It is a protected wilderness conservancy that is part of Orange County Parks, California.The painting has received an archival varnish to protect it from smoke and air pollutants. It is framed in a Higbee Plein Air wood frame of high quality.
Otherwise it would be gallery price. I paint each work of art with passion, skill, experience and love. I use the best quality materials to insure longevity and archival quality.
Esther's involvement in art has spanned over 50 years. She was born in Binghamton, NY in 1955. She focused on art throughout her early educational years, by drawing with any medium she could grasp between her fingers.As a very young child she felt the urge to draw on everything, so her father asked the local butcher for clean wrapping paper for his artist daughter. She would draw too her heart's content on that butcher paper with big bold strokes. When she was eight years old in 1964, she designed a poster for a Calif. Department of Motor Vehicles contest; it won her first place statewide. While in her senior year of high school in 1973, she was offered a scholarship to the Calif.
College of Arts at Oakland, thanks to her art teacher. Instead, there was a seven year marriage to her first husband and having two sons.
By 1980 she began formal studies in art at Tompkins Cortland-Community College (TC-3) in Dryden, New York. She studied both architectural design and fine art.
She spent another year studying art and art history at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland in 1982. She moved to Los Angeles in 1983 to study fashion design at The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM). Trying to balance her role as a mother forced her to take a long sabbatical.
She retained her creative spirit and became self-motivated in her learning of art. She lived in Washington, D. For five years spending many hours studying the masters in the museums. She remarried and now has two daughters also.She has entered into many juried exhibitions and won various awards. She is in three art associations, has accelerated her awareness of the plein air and California, plus French impressionism style by continuing to paint among modern signature and established artists. Gallery representation: Afishinado's Gallery. Affiliations are the California Art Club, Southern California Plein Air Painters and the Catalina Art Association.
