Andrea Dern Original painting - FRAGRANT LILACS
Andrea Dern works in oils, because the flexibility of the oil medium allows her the option of capturing her subject directly in one sitting, or in painting in layers over many weeks. She is constantly trying to capture the ephemeral beauty of the roses from her garden, "from bud to leaf, to fallen petals, and also the evocative lilacs of my youth in the Midwest."
Dern is an avid and accomplished gardener. She collects rare and antique roses and many varieties of jasmine and lilac. Her Southern California studio is all but engulfed by these heady, lively blooms. As an actor’s wife, Dern has had many unique opportunities to explore fascinating locales throughout the US and abroad. Discovering and exploring museums is as much of a passion with her as is painting.
"Depicting florals in oil is a constantly growing and evolving process; one which I cherish and strive to uncover more about the mysteries of this organic evolution."
