Looking Toward The Water series

About the Work

Although my paintings range from very small to very large, this space provides a great opportunity to show some of the large landscapes that have been a recent focus. The pieces chosen for this exhibit are inspired by land and sea, mostly along Rhode Island’s south coast. Although inspired by real places, how I capture an image, how I play with color, how I manipulate the paint is as important as the subject matter.

About the Artist

Paula Karen Dewell lives in South County and works in a variety of media, including acrylics and water miscible oils. She is a retired public school art teacher and currently an adjunct faculty member at Rhode Island School of Design, teaching in their summer Pre-College program and Young Artist program. She tutors adults and young adults privately.

Paula has recently spent much time on landscapes, but still lifes, flowers, portraits and animals are always appealing subjects to capture as well. She feels that occasionally diverging and experimenting keeps her artwork fresh. Her work can be found at the Charlestown Gallery in Charlestown, Rhode Island, and Sarah Jessica Fine Arts in Provincetown, Massachusetts, as well as in exhibits in other galleries in Rhode Island and Connecticut. Commissions and free lance work available.
