Claire Falkenstein: Beyond Sculpture at the Pasadena Museum of California Art

This is an Inspirational exhibition. Claire Falkenstein was a California artist who worked in many mediums, but I especially enjoyed seeing her paintings. The influence of the lanscape on nature on her work was so nice to see, especially in the painting of Yosemite. I also work closely from and with nature and it's always lovely to see how another artist does something along the same lines, yet different. Also her use of silver and other metallic paints, how they move and shimmer in the light, were great to see.
