Lemon Girl (fine art canvas) by Morgan Weistling
“I love color harmonies that provoke a mood,” says artist Morgan Weistling.
“While creating ‘Lemon Girl,’ I was inspired by the juxtaposition of the girl against the subtle greens and blues which ran through the background.
“When I paint, I prefer to suggest the form of my subject, giving impressions of what I see so that the viewer can interpret the painting for themselves. I regard this as my poem about the ‘Lemon Girl’ rather than my full-fledged novel. This allows the viewer to fill in their own details, drawing them in as part of the painting.”
Morgan Weistling began his artistic training on his father’s lap at 19 months of age, where he learned how to draw and more importantly, use his imagination. Capitalizing on his father’s talent for telling a story in comic strip form, Morgan began to develop a sense of narrative in his drawing. “It was here that art became a language for me.” At the age of 12, Morgan applied his interest in art to studying his father’s art books and began his art school studies at the Brandes Art Institute at 15. Working in a Los Angeles art supply store while attending art school, Morgan chanced to show his artwork to a prominent illustrator. As a result of their encounter, at the age of 19, Weistling found himself employed at a top movie poster agency in Hollywood.
