The Artist Says:



ARTIST STATEMENT, Becky Parks
MY ART REFLECTS A MOMENT IN TIME, PEACEFUL AND
PENSIVE, COLORFUL AND EXCITING. I USE SUBDUED
TONES FOR MY ARCHITECTURAL LANDSCAPES IN
FRANCE, THEN BRING OUT THE VIBRANT SUNFLOWERS
AND LAVENDER FIELDS. THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGES
WITH SUCH HISTORY AND THE INCREDIBLE FIELDS OF
FLOWERS WITH SUCH A BRIGHT FUTURE ARE SPECIAL
TO ME. ART TAKES ME BACK TO PLACES I LOVE AND
GIVES ME HOPE THAT I WILL BE FORTUNATE ENOUGH
TO SEE THEM AGAIN. BUT UNTIL THEN, I CAN ENJOY
MY PAINTINGS AND REFLECT ON MY SPECIAL
MOMENTS.
 




Biography


Becky was always interested in oil painting, art and architecture, but “life” put her ambitions on hold until after retiring. Numerous travels to Europe enabled her to acquire the true feeling of Provence and Tuscany. Enjoying the same light in the south of France that drew the masters such as Monet, Cezanne, and Renoire, she captured the brightly-painted shutters, the lavenders fields and the sunflowers of that special area. The medieval villages of St Paul de Vence, Gourdon and Eze to mention a few, offered many architectural opportunities for stunning paintings. Had she been born in another time, she would have designed the medieval villages of France, but recreating their distinct beauty on canvas was her way of preserving the past as well as her holiday memories. Being fluent in the French language was a huge benefit while traveling throughout France and Europe.

Artist Statement:"My art reflects a moment in time, peaceful and pensive, colorful and exciting. I use subdued tones for my architectural landscapes in France, then bring out the vibrant sunflowers and lavender fields. The medieval villages with such history and the incredible fields of flowers with such a bright future are special to me. Art takes me back to places I love and gives me hope that I will be fortunate enough to see them again.  But until then, my hope is that by sharing my special memories with you, some of my joy of painting will bring you into my wonderful life as an artist, if only for a moment."
