Beth Lambert
Southwest Harbor, Maine
~

Beth Greenwell Lambert loved to draw and paint as a child. She earned her BFA at the University of Texas in Austin with Honors. After raising 3 children, she returned to painting fulltime. She studied with Don Stone in Port Clyde and Monhegan Island, Maine, attended the Johnson Studio School in Vermont and many painting weeks on Cranberry Island, Great Spruce Island and in Eastport, Maine. She has won “Best of Show” at juried exhibits and has been represented by Clark House Gallery in Bangor, Me, Susan Maasch Fine Art in Portland, Me, Courthouse Gallery and Harlow Gallery in Ellsworth, Me and Pearson Gallery in Deer Isle, Me. Beth and her husband live in Mount Desert Island, Maine where they enjoy organic gardening, hiking and playing music.

“My art is about how the land and sky feel to me. I begin painting in ‘plein air’, gathering inspiration and information from what I see around me. I find early morning and late afternoon are the most magical times to paint outside. Nature nourishes, excites, and soothes me. I am not interested in literally rendering a scene. Rather, when I’ve gathered enough outside information, I move to an intuitive dimension. I improvise, playing with color and mark until the painting matches my feelings for the subject. I add and subtract paint, often using my fingers, huge brushes and palette knives to discover new color combinations and exciting shapes. Sometimes, I let a panel dry, then lightly sand the surface and seek new information about the essence of the scene. Listening to the heartbeat of the subject, I follow its lead, working quickly and intuitively. I feel so fortunate to be a witness of nature’s miracles and to communicate this energy and spirit. My art is about a joyful oneness with the Universe.”
