It’s worth a 1,000 words.
And speaks volumes about our life in Tahoe and Truckee.
Once again Sara has captured the playfulness of life in her latest painting Jump! that has been selected as the TAMC Collectible Sticker #2 to be released in July.
Sara and her family bring her 2 giant dogs everywhere, inspiring her to paint their fun scenes together.
“Jump! (Golden Retriever)” is just one of Sara’s new series of dog paintings and commissions that can be viewed on her website at www.SaraZimmerman.net.
About the Artist:
Sara Zimmerman is a Truckee mixed media painter who juxtaposes urban and natural landscapes with the detail of close-range subjects. With an illustration and graphic design background, Sara began experimenting with acrylic paints and techniques to enhance her artistic message.
Though she draws on works from Gerogia O’Keeffe, Joan Brown, Richard Diebenkorn, and Paul Gaugain, Sara is mostly influenced by the expressive works of her grandmother, oil painter and former Associated Press courtroom artist, Rosalie Ritz.
Sara’s newest works take the feeling of Ritz’s movement and texture and incorporate it with traditionally stationary objects, resulting in dancing telephone poles and waving trees. Sara is currently exploring abstracted scenes of the Truckee-Tahoe landscape and lifestyle, hence her expressive dog paintings.
She is an avid dog lover, having a shepherd-mix and malamute that together weigh over over 240lbs! Sara’s dogs share in her fun of river walking and hiking in the mountains with Sara and her family. Sara paints because painting is her passion in life. She uses painting as a tool to show others the benefits of slowing down focusing on the beautiful aspects of the world that usually go unseen.
Sara is represented in the Truckee/North Tahoe area, Reno, and the Bay Area and has works in private collections throughout the United States.
