Arlene Cornell is inspired to paint through the emotional response she gets from what she sees. She tries to crystallize a moment in time; special moments in our lives that transform an ordinary scene into a beautiful moving image. Her style has been developed through years of experimentation with the medium, and through her years of education in the medium. While Arlene was in school, she attended an exhibition of the world famous watercolorist Dong Kingman and was impressed by his use of vivid colors and intricate composition. Along with Dong Kingman, Arlene is also inspired by the works of Andrew Wyeth and Edward Hopper, whose influence can be seen in her paintings. She finds these artists’ ability to paint common every day scenes and communicate a sense of emotion and mood has captured her imagination. Arlene Cornell has exhibited her watercolors in numerous juried, solo and group exhibitions in the United States and Canada and has won many awards in international juried art shows. Her studio is located in Rockaway Park, N.Y.
