Scarlet Sundown by Christine Debrosky
24 x 20 in.
Available through S-Scape West Studio

Growing up in the Hudson Valley, with easy access to New York museums and galleries, and painting lessons at an early age had a big influence on Christine Debrosky’s becoming a full time artist.

That interest was reinforced when Lowry Sims, then curator of painting at the Metropolitan Museum of Art recognized Christine’s talent in early adulthood.

She then took an eye opening workshop in pastel, and has not looked back, garnering numerous awards, collectors, and exhibition opportunities across the US and Europe.

“I work both en plein air , and in the studio. For painting light effects, there is no substitute for first hand observation. I like to think that one can feel the same wind, hear nature’s rustles and enjoy the warmth of the sun when viewing my field work. Once back in the studio, I produce more contemplative pieces, carefully orchestrating design elements , inviting the observer in to the piece and to linger for a while.”

Christine is a signature member of the American Impressionist Society, American Women Artists, and Master Circle with the International Assn. Pastel Societies. Today, she lives in the desert Southwest, in a renovated home, with a custom designed dream studio.

Crimson Sundown was inspired by a visit to an Eastern woodland, just as the sun was going down…that magical time at the edge of the day, when there is a serene hush that invites contemplation and wonder.
