Meet Artist Annie Fountain, Ironstone Spring Obsession Open Division Artist

Annie Fountain
O-044  Still Beautiful  by Annie Fountain  oil  12x24  $720

Annie Fountain is a plein air artist dedicated to capturing the essence of the great outdoors near her Sierra Foothill home and elsewhere. Enamored by painting on location, she can be found regularly along old roads and ranches and by lakes and rivers in the mountains and foothills.  whether outside of in the studio, Annie's design and color instincts have a permanent outlet at the easel.

With its vast beauty and warm climate, the foothills of the Sierra have shaped her art. The first thing she sees in choosing her subject is usually the reflection of light followed by color.  Then she interprets what she sees and communicates it visually in her oil paintings. It is the impression of that moment that people relate to - that special something they've seen and experienced before - that draws their attention. For her it makes the effort exciting, satisfying and worthwhile.
