The Artscape Auction Benefits The Dallas Arboretum Donated by: Beth Hickman
Retail Value: $5,000
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Beth Hickman is basically a self-taught artist. She has taken a series of life drawing and painting classes in the Dallas area. Her interest now and throughout her painting career has been reflections, reflections in water, in silver, in mirror, in glass, anything that has a reflective surface. Her medium is mainly oil and many times she will apply silver or gold leaf, metals, jewels and shimmering decorative fibers. She has always chosen her subject matter with a strong emotional attachment with the love of beauty in the world around her!
Her use of color is the strongest element in her work! She has an innate sense of color. Her palettes are breathtaking and her control of color is magnificent! She usually has five or six palettes mixed as she starts each new painting, so the perfect hue will be just at her fingertips! And often these paintings are life size and almost always large scale, if not over scale sizes. And with all her technical skill, she does the ultimate, she creates excitement!
