Blenda's Artist's Statement--- " My style is defined as original, intuitive, and imaginative, creating paintings based on an emotional response to a subject. The most consistent elements in my paintings are simple shapes, harmonious color, and expressive line. I want to express to you, the viewer, a unique perspective of life by telling my story, using the language of paint and brush."
