rampton Strata.large Artist Hadley Rampton has studied architecture as well as art, and it shows in her sense of structure, line and perspective. She paints outdoors in both oil (above) and watercolor (below). rampton Afternoon In Split.large She enjoys traveling in historic places such as Hungary, Turkey, Georgia, Romania, Bulgaria, and Armenia. At home in Utah, she recognizes the same kind of timeless mood in the local wilderness. rampton Along Notom Road.large "Some tell me I'm crazy for painting in the mountains in the dead of winter, or for battling swarms of biting flies in summer. And yet, there I stand for hours, working, feeling there is no where else I would rather be...I begin by painting the actual scene before me, but as the painting progresses I delve into the personality of the painting, itself. A three way dialogue forms between the natural scene, the painting, and me. Which one speaks loudest changes from moment to moment, and, if any one becomes dominant for too long, the work can fail. It is the balance between the three that keeps me engaged." rampton Fugue In Blue.large
