Deb Gottschalk : On the Water
Capturing a moment is a seemingly impossible task but is the lifework of Madison-based oil painter, Deb Gottschalk. In her exquisite renderings of water and sky, and often conversations between the two, Gottschalk achieves a tranquil yet dynamic stillness in the rippling surface of ponds and rivers, and the amorphous swirling of clouds. Gottschalk’s paintings capture a personal recollection of place— all based on very real places and intended to convey a sense of the time of day, the feel of the air, the precise moment.
Gottschalk takes hundreds of reference photographs, compositing elements of the images together to capture the precise sense of place.
