A Walk In The Woods

Christine Burroughs is known for her unique use of vibrant color and texture. A former special education teacher, she began taking art classes in her early 30's. Her passion quickly grew leading her to the world of scenic design where she became the co-owner and head scenic painter for a busy theater design company. Having grown weary of the sheer physicality and temporary nature of scenic painting, she recently turned her attention to smaller works of art and began painting under the name CB Burroughs. Years spent in the theatre world taught her that surprising color choices and unexpected texture make a strong impact on the audience while purposeful imperfection promotes authenticity and strong connection. CB is highly influenced by those who look for the beauty amidst hardship and her art is the celebration of the both the joy and sadness of life.

Autumn is Virginia at its finest. It delights the senses with glorious contradictions. Squinty sunlight and long cool shadows. Deep silence and the piercing laughter of blue jays. Warm shades of fire and earth fight for our attention with deep blue and cool evergreen. Busy squirrels hide their treasures and nosy dogs sniff them out. Adults curse the never-ending leaves while children pile them into fortresses of gold. It is my favorite time of year and it is captured beautifully in the layers of oil and cold wax.
