Landscapes of New England: Painting by Kim Senior

Kim Senior is a Vermont-based artist who captures the landscapes of New England in paintings. The artist uses a delicate, painterly hand to render trees, dappled sunlight, rolling hills, and running water with equal care.

Kim’s painting portfolio features galleries for each season. It’s interesting to be able to see paintings of a similar location in a variety of different seasons, to see the changes in the foliage, skies, and lighting. The artist’s paintings demonstrate not only an eye for realistic detail, but a genuine love for the landscapes that they depict.

I really love the mood that Kim develops in her Gardens series. These paintings present a more close-up view than many of the artist’s other landscapes. Accordingly, the artist takes the opportunity to focus in on the way that sunlight interacts with individual flower petals, and to develop the textures of foliage and man-made materials.
