Watercolor is Betsy Mirabelli’s chosen medium, and landscapes are her major focus and inspiration.
Her solo exhibit, “Landscape Meditations,” on display through mid March 2019 in the Lundt-Glover gallery at the Chatham Township Municipal Building, includes 50 watercolor paintings.
Betsy studied watercolor with Elizabeth O’Reilly at Parsons and the New School in New York City, where she was first introduced to plein air painting. She later took classes at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit with Nancy Korde, Anne Kullaf, and Fernando Catague. She has gone on plein air watercolor workshops with Kullaf to Aspen, Colo., and to Siena, Italy.
Betsy likes the unpredictable nature of watercolors, and always enjoys “when a painting just flows. It’s like a meditative state,” she says.
