A lifetime artist, Porter's paintings and fine prints hang in private & corporate collections world wide.
" Scenes that set a mood or tell a story, always inspire me. To capture that place and time in paint or with my camera is my goal " - Elaine Porter
I am a plein aire painter. I also enjoy studio work, implementing my collected observations of nature along with reference to my photographs . Some things I see in oil, some in watercolor or colored pencil.
Also a passionate gardener, I gain a lot of visual observation from watching the miracle of renual, as the perennials make their annual entrance.
