Michele’s work interprets these transformations through multiple layers of paint, glazes, imprints, and mysterious details with random lines and markings.

INSPIRATIONPaintings by Betsy Forster
Golden Hills by Betsy Forster
She creates for us a wide variety of delightful views: from the forests, fields and mountains of Wyoming and Montana to the hills and valleys of the Virginia countryside. She shows us her incredible ability to depict uninhabited spots that are becoming more difficult to find in our increasingly urbanized society.
The work in this exhibition includes pieces painted in oil, pastel and mixed media. When asked what her favorite medium is, she responds, “pastel, as I love to draw and the pastel stick is a wonderful drawing tool”.
Born in Madera, California, Forster spent most of her childhood in Dallas, Texas. Her childhood memories of the brown hills of California and the big skies of Texas are reflected in her desire to produce landscape paintings. She received a BA in Art from Auburn University, Montgomery, Alabama and later an MFA in painting from the American University in Washington, DC.
