Gwen Freeman's landscapes are thickly layered and wildly colored:
a feminized contemporaneous, LA version of German expressionist landscapes.
A new direction for Gwen, made possible by the 2011 construction of a studio
adjacent to her house where she can slather on oil paint
with great disregard for the walls, floor and furniture.
The scenes are based on relatively faithful plain air sketches
of the italian countryside, the California coast,
southwest canyons and
her own Mt. Washington neighborhood.
