Artist Statement
"Value is probably what draws me into a painting. I love to create interest through the use light and color, in order to give a sense of time or space.   I now enjoy working full time in my own studio. I create paintings from my Midwest surroundings and travels. I enjoy working en plein air and in the studio."
Art critic Brian Sherwin, Editor of The Art Edge, commented on Laura's pastel landscape paintings. Sherwin said, "Artist Laura Lengeling skillfully captures the essence of the rural Midwest landscape. Her impressive landscape paintings acknowledge the beauty that can be observed if we explore beyond the beaten path. Each painting is a study of space and color -- a moment caught in time for all to observe."
