 "I try to capture the play of light, bringing the viewer into the moment that inspired me."

-Paula Kolojeski

 

  I’ve been living and painting in New Jersey for thirty years now. Working on location whenever possible, I try to capture the play of light, bringing the viewer into the moment that inspired me. Because of the reflective nature of sand and sea, the beach is a great place to study these effects. I’ve also found subject matter in the wooded areas near Princeton, where I live, and occasionally much farther afield when I travel. I’ve usually chosen pastels for my outdoor work because of their convenient portability, but recently I’ve been working with oils on location as well. 

 

Back in the studio I bring these sketches to a finished state and often develop oil paintings based on them. During the winter months I enjoy working on still life as well.
