Painting by Athena Mantle

Athena Mantle's passion for desert botanicals invite appreciation to a specie of plants that most over look. Her sense of color intrigues the eye with clean color combination's as she masters the light found in the spectrum of the heat of the day.

Bio: Athena works from photographs that she takes of her subjects which she collects in her travels in and out of town as well as her own garden.  She then injects her own splash of enthusiasm into the subject and relays that on the canvas. While oil is her primary medium she also enjoys working with pastel, pencil and watercolor.  “I use the medium that I feel will best create the effect I’m going for,” the artist says, “the ultimate goal for me as an artist is to convey the subject in a realistic but fun and lively way and uplift the viewer.”  Read more . . . http://paintersshowcase.com/profile/athena-mantle
