Blueprints for Paradise : the Watercolor Paintings of Sara SteeleBook - 2005
Sara Steele is one of America's most widely recognised and lauded watercolourists. Her paintings range from dramatic images of flowers and evocative still lifes to expansive abstractions and ethereal landscapes. Her palate is intense and the dialogue she establishes with her subjects is bold and expressive. This book marks the midpoint of the artist's career, and celebrates 30 years of painting. As a retrospective survey, this new book is an invaluable reference picturing over 220 paintings from throughout Steele's career. In addition, through extensive personal interviews, we meet the artist in her studio and explore her thinking about Art, ecology, painting, cats, and the healing forces of nature. This is a vivid collection of remarkable paintings.
