The Early Bird, 8x10 inches, oil on linen, $950.00 SOLD

Thank you for the feature, Galleries West!

Tanya Bone is deeply influenced by the elements of nature. Her inspiration originates from seeing nuances of light and shadow. In her work, she strives to capture the light through dramatization of a subject and show how light alone can transfigure an ordinary still-life subject, at a specific moment, into something magnificent or tender.
