Laura Roney presents The Golden Hour, a collection of oil paintings that depict the landscape when the light is fleeting. These works transport the viewer to that unique and magical time of day when the sun is near the horizon. “How the changing light transforms the landscape is mesmerizing and truly inspires my work, “ said Roney. Primarily showing scenes of Sonoma County and wine country, these paintings are so compelling, they create their own golden glow.
A wine-country artist, Roney has been in love with art her entire life. She started studying at an early age and kept it up whatever avenue she was pursuing. After a successful career in microbiology and pharmaceutical research, a family move to Northern California enabled Roney to focus on her art. She recently received her MFA from the Academy of Art University.
The Small Works Showcase on the stairway features Speaking Cat and Dog by guest artist John Sumner. Sumner uses creative textures and vibrant colors to capture the character and antics of our four-legged friends. Living with many cats, painting them became second nature to the artist. Always fun, Sumner’s work runs the gamut of realistic to interpretive.
