HOPE FRIEDLAND - Watermedia Artist

My artwork is concerned with the play of interesting shapes, vibrant colors, rich textures and bright contrasts. My impressionistic watercolors include a wide variety of subjects including florals, landscapes, animals and people.  My wet into wet paintings are expressive interpretations. A primary goal of mine is to preserve the white of the paper. This gives my work an overall quality of light and sparkle.
 I am an award winning artist. My work has been exhibited throughout the New York area in juried, solo and group shows.  I teach watercolor and collage classes for Larchmont/Mamaroneck Center for Continuing Education, The Pelham Art Center and The Scarsdale  Adult School.  My work is represented by the Hawthorne Framing Gallery in Hawthorne, NY.  Additionally, I teach creative watercolor classes for Crystal, Cunard and Royal Caribbean cruise lines. Recently I completed a commission to paint The Jeffries Point Lite for the Collins family. Three generations of this family were lighthouse keepers for this famous landmark, aka  the  "Little Red Lighthouse"  under the George Washington bridge.  My work also appears on the cover of numerous course catalogs.  As a writer, I write informative articles about teaching art and elementary art education.
