From vast, clear skies to dramatic cloud formations, Catherine Freshley’s paintings transport the viewer to a place that is familiar and comfortable. Her work attempts to capture and showcase the transcendent beauty in our everyday scenes – back roads and fields and the expansive skies above them. Her work is representative but, at times, spare. She omits intricate detail, allowing viewers to layer their own memory and meaning onto her paintings. Freshley is based in small-town Oklahoma.
