February 2020 Spotlight Artist: Lois Haskell
Growing up in a small, New England town with a large artist community gave me the opportunity to study with many excellent artists in the area. I never lost my love of painting and began again to paint regularly in 1994.
Since then I have studied with many Northwest artists and attended workshops given by well-known artists such as Betty Carr, William Hewson, Catherine Gill, Teresa Saia, Kay Barnes and Owen Hall.
I consider myself a “colorist” as the creative use of colors in both watercolor and oils is my first consideration when painting. Painting the Northwest landscape has become a passion and many of my Northwest paintings are in private collections around the country.
