Lorraine Field in Studio with Cow Painting behind on easel

Growing up in the 60's/70's the very fact of being born a girl excluded many choices. I felt frustrated, sidelined and invisible except for how I looked and boy, did I sulk! My escape from these restrictions came during halcyon childhood holidays. Freedom! To splash around in the sea, build sandcastles and run wild. And on frequent holidays to a local farm to milk cows at dawn and horse ride bareback to and from the fields. In my paintings I want to capture the sheer simplicity and innocence of those days. Which is why I wanted to share my artwork with you today.

Inspired by master painters such as Sorrolla and John Singer Sargent and modern day painters Vladimir Volegov and Daniel Gerhartz. All skillful with their capture of light.
