Tracy Leagjeld show of new monotypes opens at Tumalo Art Co. October 3 from 5-9pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk.
Tracy’s monotypes are her way of communicating her love and reverence for nature. “Forests, meadows and deserts all have a different kind of energy. I am not as concerned with capturing correct shape and color, as with capturing an expression of what I’m experiencing. I strive to create paintings that allow the viewer to put themselves into the painting and feel the spirit of the place.” Tracy has perfected her process of creating monotypes, using rollers to build up the images layer by layer, before transferring to paper or board.
A life-long Bendite, Tracy now lives in Portland, where she paints city and oceanscapes as well as images of the Central Oregon landscape she loves.
