April’s plein air advice, adventures & art: Plein Talk Q&As with April Raber & Artwork Showcase
From her earliest years, April’s vision was to paint. She kept this vision throughout her college years, and began showing in galleries shortly after graduating. Except for six years as the designer and art director for a national magazine, April’s full-time career has been creating fine art.
“Although my paintings are representational, I am defiantly not trying to emulate photo-realism. Rather, my mind and my eye work together to form a double vision. This brings to the canvas impressions of both the seen and the unseen. Without both the scene does not come alive. For me, art is about seeing not only the obvious image, but interpreting its essence.” — April Raber
