Sheila Agee - Painter

Sheila lives and works out of her studio near Brandon, South Dakota with her wife LuAnn. Her work most often reflects whatever nature has to offer – hoping to capture the light of the sky or reflect on the essence of a more intimate detail. She says she likes to paint ‘Plein Air’ but most of her work is finished in her studio. For image references, Sheila uses photographs taken while sagging for her biking family and friends, or photographs taken by her friend Marianne Larsen. But, at last for the best results, she says it is best to quickly abandon the restraints of the original image and just paint. Some of the works in this exhibition have images created by “helping hands,” such as Hiawatha which depicts the essence of the vivid details left behind by loving thoughtful persons - evoking a lasting impression.

Artist’s Statement

With so much chaos in our everyday life we need to make a point to stop, refresh if you will, to notice the beauty around us - even if it’s just for a moment. When looking for a painting subject, like most things, the more you hunt for a moment to capture the more moments you will find. One doesn’t really need the whole state of South Dakota to fill a gallery with images, but it is fun to find images that are so common to our everyday life and say “Here look at this.”
