Oil Painting from Lori Taylor

Lori Taylor, a native Hoosier, is a full time high school art teacher and a part time oil painter. She is inspired by nature and loves to paint what she sees through a creative lens. Here is a brief snapshot of her creative process, in her own words.

“I see potential paintings in just about everything. A flowering bush on my way to work; better take a reference photo just in case. An Indiana sunset while headed down a country back road, better take a few photos just in case. Unable to take a reference photo because I’m driving; better make a quick sketch and write down detailed notes about color and texture as soon as I get stopped. You see the pattern here? I’m inspired by nature and almost every day I find something that captures my eye and inspires me to paint.

This started out with trees, which I’ve always been incredibly drawn to, and later moved on to flowers, sunsets, and landscapes. Sometimes the color combinations were natural and other times I used color to tell a mood or reflect on a specific emotion I felt at the moment. For example, my painting “Magnolia Blossom” was based on a photo of a magnolia tree that I took while visiting New Orleans. The reference flowers were white, in my painting however, the flowers are red and yellow with blue and red leaves. I wanted to capture the emotion of my time in the city and that’s where the color came from. 

Most recently I started working on a series of small paintings based on bible verses. It’s a departure from my nature inspired works but I’m really loving the challenge of working completely from my own imagination. The smaller scale also allows me to complete the work more quickly and I’m really enjoying that aspect. As an artist, I definitely have a common focus but sometimes something will just smack me over the head, like the bible verses, and I have to paint it in order to quiet my mind. It’s the only way to get it out. Sometimes, for me, these are the most inspiring works of all.”
