Statement

“The magic of painting has captured me ever since I started. It has become my passion” – M.E. Freudenberger

“Working from life allows me to pick up subtleties of color; atmospheric conditions and changing light. Currently I am exploring the beaches and the ocean of the shores on Long Island and documenting these illusive shifts in color. My blue series paintings represent the color of the ocean at a particular time of day and vary accordingly.

Painting still lifes allow me to explore color, form, texture and the play of light on everyday objects. Even though the composition is carefully planned, I strive to keep my paintings fresh and spontaneous and hope to convey the joy and excitement I feel when exploring and painting these objects.”
