“Part of my journey as an artist has been to connect deeply with my painting subjects,” says Rosemary Conroy. “I want to understand these beings as much as possible and on many levels. Whether bears, owls or whales, I want to know their habitats, their micro and macro movements, and to have felt some of their essential energy. The pieces in this show are my attempt to show what I have learned so far — the beauty, wonder and mystery inherent in these wild creatures. I’ve tried to capture their essence in my paintings because I want you to recognize it in yourself.”
