Surround Yourself With Inspiration
Gretchen Wood's paintings are often creative interpretations of nature, with rhythmic compositions and vibrant colors. A love for traveling to new destinations and an interest in cultures around the world feed her inspiration and move her toward these subjects. Her artwork is often inspired by emotion and expression, and she will carry that theme throughout the painting. Her work brings to light a beauty that is all around us, in a poetic, and abstract way.
"I love to see people smile. There is something so heart warming and special about a person's smile....it's a powerful thing. And if I can do something in this world to produce a smile, well that feels like the best thing that I could be doing. I am in the business of making smiles. Providing people with joy filled inspiration, reminding them to dream their own dreams.... and be hopeful. Life is often going to be quite hard, even impossible..... but even in the difficult, there is joy, and there is beauty. That's what I want for the world....more joy and more inspiration..... When I sit and watch people look at my art, they usually smile, and that in turn..... makes me smile too. From my heart to yours, you are loved. God Bless." ~Gretchen
