Aruna RAO

Invited Artist 2019

 

"Nothing excites me more than capturing the intangible beauty of light as it transforms the landscape."

When Aimee and I first saw Aruna's paintings we were both immediately taken by her strong sense of atmosphere and light.
This series of paintings, her first of Colorado, perfectly capture the uniqueness of our landscapes.

We think she is a wonderful addition to our Gallery! Enjoy!
The prices shown are for the unframed paintings, the frames used in her show are available.

 

One of Aruna's paintings "Framed by Light" will be exhbited in the ARC Salon in Spain in December 2019.
The ARC Salon Exhibition is scheduled to open at the MEAM
