Elijah by Lorraine Skala - Wolf Art - Paintings, Prints & Cards - Painted and Printed in the USA
I love wildlife, especially wolves. I am fascinated with their social structure, their wisdom and their family devotion. I am drawn particularly to the eyes — the eyes tell you so much. In my paintings, I strive to convey emotions through the eyes.
My name is Lorraine Skala, and I am a watercolor artist based in Brevard, North Carolina. My husband, Jim, and I spend nine months in Brevard and three months in a little log cabin (complete with art studio) on a small island in McGregor Bay, Ontario. Yes, we are the only two people who live on this island; however, we are blessed with visits from dear family and friends. We are both from Michigan, but started spending winters in North Carolina after the birth of our grandson.
I started watercolor painting ten years ago when I retired. By the grace of God, I found painting to be my path to contentment and freedom of spirit. To me, art is truly magical and has the power to transform the human existence. The process of creating a painting is a very energizing experience, and I work and rework a piece until it “feels” right.
I find great joy in painting things that are near and dear to my heart.
