Gwen Pentecost

 
Pinetop-Lakeside, Arizona

Artist's Statement

Raised in an artist's household in Carmel Valley, Gwen grew up with the process of making art from an early age. Although she explores a range of subject matter, Gwen’s passion is the landscape of the Southwest, from New Mexico to California, from desert canyons and high mountains to the seashore. She balances her outdoor painting time with painting in the studio adjoining her gallery, Joyous Lake, but enjoys painting plein air best. One of the best times to paint in the White Mountains is the fall season, when the aspens turn the mountains a deep yellow gold. She then hosts an annual plein air (on location) painting event called "Paint the Aspens," to celebrate that beautiful fall color.

Gwen is a past president of our organization and has been an active board member for many years.

"Copse Near Green's Peak"

Oil
After fleeing the high cold winds on Green's Peak, we spotted a copse of trees at its base that looked both interesting and protected. Nice combination of rocks and yellow paths of aspen leaves through them. Plein Air.
Dimensions: 11H" x 14W"
$460 framed

"Indian Canyon Oasis"

Oil
Although specializing in landscapes of the White Mountains, my history and travels take me to other parts of the Southwest as well, this time to La Quinta for the Desert Plein Air festival. One of the sites painted by participating artists was the oasis at the San Andreas Overlook up on the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation. That glowing desert light is the real subject of this painting.
Dimensions: 20H" x 24W"
$1,245 framed

"Bend in the River, Yosemite"

Oil
The Merced River, as it flows through Yosemite Valley...wonderful in early fall when the crowds aren't quite as thick.
Dimensions: 20H"x 24W"
$1,245 framed

"Pima Lane"

Oil
Pinetop-Lakeside is a beautiful community, whose residents show an an obvious attachment to the graceful trees and woods of this area. This scene is especially intriguing when those tall cottonwoods take on their fall color. Made a steering wheel easel for my car so I can paint comfortably in this increasingly cold weather, and it really works. Plein Air.
Dimensions: 8H"x 10W"
$195 framed
