The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.      Psalm 24:1
Welcome to Paintings by Betty Sampsell
My career did not include being involved in any art related business, but I've always enjoyed learning about art, especially painting, and think of myself as an artist and painter.

Each of my paintings is an expression of my feelings, ideas and personal interests through the use of light, color and composition as well as through the selection of subject matter. 

My enjoyment with rendering realistic paintings has continued over many years and yet I find that working in an abstract manner is also very exciting, fulfilling and challenging.     
Working with acrylic paint provides flexibility for   whatever style or subject I'm using.  My paintings often evolve from applying layers upon layers of paint, and then sometimes by removing layers. 

The paintings emerge through experimentation, working on positive images and then on the negative areas.   This method always contributes it's own creative surprises as the painting progresses.
