About Norma Bruhn, Artist


Young At Heart

Norma still paints in her 80s.  She loves to teach people how to paint.  Her famous quote:  "It's just paint! You can always paint over it, if you don't like it."


Plein Air Painting

It simply means painting outside, The colors and shadows are best defined by natural light.  She secretly touches up her paintings when she is home.  It sure can get cold on location!


Still Life Set Up

Here you see Norma is outside painting one of her still life oil paintings.  While the set up of the items are contrived for interest, the natural light is critical for beautiful highlights and shadows.
