Anne Canfield paints and draws on a tiny intimate scale inspired by the detail of naturalism. Starting with a tight drawing, often working from a memory, an image or an element of film, Canfield creates a narrative that reveals a solitary place or quiet moment. Following the most time intensive part of the process, the initial drawing, the painting begins.. Canfield favors an appealing palette of bright, saturated color, adding a dreamy quality to the domestic scenes and landscapes. These jewel-like paintings, in spite of their diminutive size, command attention equal to a much larger work, each becoming a small window captivating the viewer into a magical world.
