Harriet Sobie Goldstein, artist, fell in love with the natural environment near her home in Hollywood, Florida. She created a series of evocative oil paintings in which she has interpreted the beauty of the water, beaches, mangroves, and voluminous cloud formations.
“These meditative oil paintings with their brilliant blues and greens are reflective of my love for the beaches and mangroves near my home in Hollywood. I love to sit and gaze at the ocean with its ever-changing colors. These paintings were developed from photographs that I took and my memories of pure bliss. I hope to engender these same feelings in all who view my artwork.”You can learn more about Harriet and her work at www.harrietsobiegoldstein.info.

About the Exhibition
As I live my life, I save memories of people and events that are significant to me. These memories are charged with emotions and carry moods of time passed, and that to me is more important than physical objects associated with memories.
When I start painting, I choose a memory that expresses the way I feel at a particular moment. I begin with realistically painting details of that memory. Some memories have lost their form due to the passage of time, but the emotion is still there. In cases like this, I start by painting what I do remember: color, light, shape, and form. Once this basic information is on the canvas, the image is taken to another level; it is intuitively abstracted, thereafter I consciously develop a picture that carries a mood of a particular period of my life and at the same time is aesthetically pleasing to a spectator.
The viewer is invited to feel the moods behind my deeply personal, memory-based paintings that are charged with emotions.
