Aleezah Selinger's painting "Woman and Child" can be seen this season on the set of Fox Television's "The Following" starring Kevin Bacon.
An impressionistic artist, her paintings capture the style of years ago while bringing forth a fresh prospective.
The artist is revealed by how she views the world. I feel my love of art shows through my paintings genuinely. I have been told my style represents me authentically...that my brushstrokes and the way I portray human figures are very individual and very me...gentle and delicate...that I paint who I am. I believe this is what art is all about..
I always knew that one day I would paint in oil. I could never get enough of art museums and till this day I love to get up close and study brush strokes. I have always seen out of an artist's eye. Beautiful scenes become paintings in my mind. Scenes that are interesting often give me a feeling that this would make a painting with a beautiful surreal look. I love color, especially pastel muted shades.
After working many years I have finally devoted my time to painting every day. My husband has encouraged me with a studio in our home. Every morning I get up and paint. When I am not painting, I am thinking about painting.
When I love a painting I want it to be one of the first things I see when I wake up in the morning. When our surroundings have a calming affect on us it helps to put us in a calm mood. I want my paintings to bring people this same peaceful feeling...which is the feeling I have as I paint.
I hope you enjoy my artwork and it brings you tranquility.
