Paintings and art by Holly Whiting

From the woods of the White Mountains and the cliffs of Acadia, to the shore birds of Connecticut, the colors and patterns of nature are what inspires me. 

”I can’t tell you how moved I am when I look at the portrait of Olivia and me. It’s perfect. I looove it. This painting will always be cherished.” -Kathleen

My inspiration comes from all of the corners of the world around me. From the woods of the White Mountains to the shore birds of Connecticut, the textures and patterns of nature, and of man, drive my vision and my art.

My recent works utilize reactive metals - paints containing iron, copper and bronze - which are oxidized to create rust and patina. I find the resultant corrosion to be a compelling medium with which to portray beauty as well as destruction. In an abstract landscape, or semi-abstract painting of a bird, for example, the medium conveys the dual nature of our world – peace and violence, stasis and growth, the indelible marks made by man and his impermanence.

This medium, coupled with decorative techniques such as stenciling and gilding, gives me a vast palette as I try to express the shaded meaning of our world.

When I’m not hiking the trails of the Connecticut shoreline or the cliffs of Acadia, I’m leaning my Suzuki SV650 motorcycle through the twisties of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Each time I return from a camping trip or motorcycle ride, I carry with me a piece of the place I’ve been. My landscape paintings are based on these places. Sometimes I work from photos I’ve made, other times from the feelings I’ve brought back.

From ospreys and owls to tigers and zebras, seascapes and mountains to rivers and lakes, I love painting images of nature. Landscapes, seascapes, ocean scenes, birds and animals all have found a place in my work. Many of my pieces use unusual mediums such as gold leaf, mica, and reactive metal paints. I also work in watercolor, pastels and acrylics. As a Connecticut artist I love to paint images of the shoreline, and am inspired by the coastal beauty of the New England shore from Connecticut to Maine and New Hampshire. Favorite subjects include Acadia, the Maine coast, the Vermont woods, New Hampshire mountains, rivers, lakes, and ocean scenes. I use unique media, making my paintings one-of-a-kind.
