Janet Lucas Beck
“When I was in high school I read a historical novel about the painter Titian. The author wrote that when Titian looked out his window in Venice he saw the scene before him in patches of color as if it were a painting. I remember thinking that I would never be a painter because I did not view the world that way. After I began to paint I realized that I was seeing the landscape as an arrangement of colors as I had imagined Titian seeing the Italian scene before him. I decided that one does not become a painter because one sees the world differently than others, but rather one begins to see the world differently after becoming a painter. Inspired by the colors and subtleties of the landscape, I observe the colors of the grasses, trees and distant horizons whether I am looking out my window at home, driving the highways of the beautiful Southern United States, riding a bicycle down a country road in Europe or walking in my neighborhood at dusk. I enjoy capturing the effects of light, shadow, atmosphere and weather. I like to paint reflections: light reflecting in the water as the sun is setting in the gulf, light reflecting on rainy city streets, light reflecting on the hard surfaces of porcelain or glass bottles. I love to travel and view my paintings as an attempt to demonstrate the beauty and variety of God’s creation.”
