Jane Fritz is an award-winning artist who became hooked on watercolors when she created a painting journal while traveling for ten months with her husband throughout southeast Asia. She is a Signature Member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of Alabama, and the Western Colorado Watercolor Society, and is also a member of the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies. She exhibits in state, regional, national and international exhibits, and, having traveled and painted in over twenty countries, she has work in private collections in the USA, Canada, and elsewhere.
My work focuses on landscapes and wildflowers to share my profound sense of peace and awe when I am in the wilderness. A pathway of shadows or other guiding lines leads the viewers’ attention to a luminous focal with the most detail and contrast. This center of interest beckons the observers into the painting, and entices them to examine the details of the flowers or to imagine what is beyond the horizon. My hope is that my work will help foster an appreciation for wilderness and nature that encourages people to work toward preservation of the ecosystems that sustain us all.
