About Elaine Bailey

'When I'm in the Creative Process my passion for bright vivid colors guides me to oneness with my subject.'
FLORALS AND LANDSCAPES IN OIL AND WATERCOLOR

COLOR IS INTOXICATING TO ME!!
My first creative endeavors were sewing with gorgeous colored fabrics. I designed and sewed my daughter's and my clothes with a good degree of success.

In his retirement, I watched my father draw and paint. A great desire began to emerge in me. I wanted to use color in a new way - I wanted to paint. I believed I couldn't draw. In the quiet of my home, after the children had gone to school and my husband was at work, I tried - using an art book and some pastels - to create a painting. With the strong support of my husband I subsequently took lessons to learn the basics. Then I went to a well known flower painter in California--and the world of flowers and color opened in a whole new way! A way that was so exciting to me that it brought back the memories of when I was a child and much to my mother's chagrin, used to pick flowers in other people's gardens. Now I paint my own and have never looked back!

Over the years I've tried using my colors in nearly every medium (including watercolor and pastels) but I always return to the richness of oils. My style has changed some in 40 years. I paint in a more relaxed way now, but I have confidence and command over my medium. My patrons and friends tell me they can SMELL the floweres in my btright and bold paintings.
