PAINTING THE ESSENCE OF NATURE AND MAN

IMG_8429.jpeg

Sally Veach paints interpretations of the landscape surrounding her home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  She uses quick, gestural strokes in oils, acrylic, and other media with brush, palette knife, and fingers to portray the beautiful perfection of nature at odds with the activities of man. With her Barns of Shenandoah paintings, Veach addresses the fact that her county’s barns are slowly returning to nature. For Veach, barns symbolize aspects of humanity that intersect with nature. The barns also speak to her of the spirits of ancestors who were some of the United State’s first immigrants.
