HOW SHE DID IT: The Creativity of Georgeanna Lipe
By: Patricia Daly-Lipe, PhD
About the Book
”The exuberance of facing a stark white canvas or beautifully hand-crafted watercolor sheets is pure joy.
The approach I take is to let it come from within.”
This is precisely what Georgeanna Lipe wrote. As artists, we usually start with a preconceived idea which often morphs into something totally unexpected. Viola! A mixture of energetic movements of colors and shapes emerges. Both she and I have a background in professional work in anatomy. As she writes, study of color theory and illustration have given us the technological tools we need. However, as Georgeanna points out, it is our inner voice that is in charge. Whether it is figurative or landscape work, as artists, we love bright colors and subtle emphasis of intertwining shapes. My inspiration is always harmony of nature and the spirit of mankind. I work from both my photographs or on location. Having traveled and lived in Europe, visiting museums and everyday life there left a huge impression on me and my work. We see the same in the life and paintings portrayed in this book of Georgeanna Lipe!
