Figurative Works Through the Years by Theresa Oats

Brian Musseig
18x24 oil on canvas

Human beings are fascinating to me because everyone has 
 their own personality and inner world. I work from life because
the passage of time invites a person to reside in the inner world of thoughts
and emotion.  Observing their body language and expression offers me a glimpse
into the beauty of their spirits.

  1. Dear Theresa, I do love your paintings, your garden and particularly some of your portraits, red gloves, white skirt, pat weaver, and so on. They are wonderful. It is also so good to see nudes of well built men; 'morning' was brilliant. I particularly like the way you have caught the power of each presence. Thank you.
