M A N O N S A N D E R
Since childhood, Manon has never lost her sense of wonder to nature’s beauty. She pays attention to details of her surroundings, making it easy for her to find inspiration where ever she goes. Creating art to this day never feels like a pastime but like a necessity. From the previous influences of the impressionism in her early career, in 2006, her passion to paint plein air and studio paint in oil was ignited.
“Ready To Go Out” by Manon Sander
Oils became quickly her favorite medium, allowing her to have an ongoing conversation with her subject. Under the watch of distinguished and renowned artists, Manon studied how to make a painting that combines rich texture and vivid color while capturing the expression of her subject and the impression it left on her.
“The Violin” by Manon Sander
In addition to painting en plein air, Manon often picks random objects like items found in a tool box or Oreo cookies and a glass of milk for a still life set-up. To Manon it doesn’t matter so much what she paints, since she is mostly interested in the effect the light has on an object. Capturing the light is what drives Manon to make a painting.
“Comfort Zone” by Manon Sander
Manon puts down her impressions in thick juicy oil paint, applied with gusto and bold brushstrokes: the sunlight that creates lavender shadows on the white clothing of people walking by the water’s edge deep in conversation; surfers and paddle boarders catching an aquamarine wave; boats at rest and on a journey; sea creatures and birds that call Florida their home, are among the countless things that get her so excited that she can’t wait to get out her paints and easel to capture them on canvas. It is happiness and love of life Manon aims to share with the viewer in paintings that reflect the color, light and joy that she is surrounded by and is ever so grateful for.
“Ten Knots” by Manon Sander
Manon’s paintings continue to be exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions in California and Florida, have won awards and are in private collections on three continents. She teaches oil painting through the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, North County Art Association and Artists’ Guild of Lighthouse ArtCenter. Manon has four paintings in Jim Snyder’s new book: “James D. Snyder: A Trip Down the Loxahatchee”, focusing on the river’s history and beauty in paintings and photographs. Pharos Books, 2015. p. 12, 16, 96, 97.
