BRENDA PINNICK is a plein air painter who paints whatever she sees in front of her and draws our attention to often underappreciated details of everyday life. Her understated colors and energetic brushstrokes create scenes that radiate a sense of calm. She utilizes subtle shifts in color temperature and saturation to capture the time of day and the atmospheric conditions.
