CLICK HERE to read the Plein Air Magazine Article about my work!"Debra Joyce Dawson, AIS, paints colorful, evocative outdoor landscapes. She travels extensively, and her paintings serve as a painterly record of a moment in time, whether it be in Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, or in her more local surroundings. Her medium of choice is oil, with preparatory sketches in graphite, charcoal, pen or watercolor. Some works are small and completed en plein air; while her studio works are larger and more complex in idea and execution. Her energy and delight in color, light, and shape are dazzling. But she never surrenders her subject, and each building, boat, hillside, or human figure is carefully pinned to the picture plane in the context of its surroundings. This places her in the best context of American Impressionism, whether one considers John Singer Sargent or Ohio’s own Alice Schille or Edward Henry Potthast."                Susan Talbot-Stanoway, Former Director Zanesville Museum of Art
