Becky Enabnit Silver

  I was born in Wyoming and have lived in Colorado for 35 years.   I love the mountains and the beauty of the west.  The beautiful colors of the sunset, the mystery of clouds hanging over the mountains, or the colors reflecting in a mountain stream, all inspire me to paint.  I try to share my feelings with others through my artwork.  I am also fascinated by the play of light and shadow, and color changes that they create.  I paint in a variety of styles from very impressionistic to traditional realism.  My landscapes are usually more impressionistic with a bold use of color.  My style becomes more realistic when I paint portraits and flowers.  I especially enjoy doing portraits of children.
