Robin Hall – “Since I was very young, I was exposed to both the joys and frustration of painting. My mother was a professional painter, and I was taken to almost every gallery, outdoor show, and museum in the Los Angeles area before I was nine. I didn’t know at the time, what a polarizing effect that exposure would have on me till I found myself reexamining my love to paint at age thirty. With two small babies, I was determined to balance a career in painting and still be a devoted mother. Today, I divide my time between painting on location and in the studio. Most of all the larger studio paintings are created from both the small outdoor studies and photos I have taken while painting. The small studies provide the color notes that photos cannot capture and the photographs have the reference of a little more detail that is sometimes needed. Light is probably the most important element I look for when composing a painting, yet sometimes the tonal effect of a strong atmosphere can also grab my attention. I try not to focus on detail, but strive to exhibit a personal vision with my composition. Sometimes it’s what is left out in our painting that can equate to a stronger painting.”
