Artist interview

Recently Joanne Van Zuidam interviewed me for the Caldwell Patch. We talk about where I live/paint for the past 10 years (Caldwell NJ), color and my daughter's Crayola crayons.

Whether she's painting en plein air, or sketching a still life in her Caldwell studio, artist Lisa Palombo masterly captures the colors, light and contours of her subject—which is usually flowers. Her signature style: brushstrokes of bold, beautiful florals, such as lush peonies, glorious roses, and stunning black-eyed susans....Click on Caldwell Patch to read more.

NJ Audubon Society, Wattles Stewardship Center

The NJ Audubon Society honored Mr. & Mrs. Wattles today at the new Warren county Wattles Stewardship Center. Last summer NJ Audubon Society partnered with local farmers to grow sunflowers for black-oil bird seed, as part of  the S.A.V.E. program. Fortunately, I was able to see and paint the sunflower fields before they were harvested.

DETAIL of "Good Morning Sunshine" 30"x40" oil on linen

This summer I discovered a wonderful program, S.A.V.E. (Support Agricultural Viablity and the Environment) sponsered by the NJ Audubon Society (NJAS). My painting, "Good Morning Sunshine" was based on one of the farms that is involved with the program. They grow a sunflower crop and harvest the seeds to sell through the NJAS. NJ farmers are are working with NJAS to grow a "greener" more environmentally and bird friendly black-oil sunflower seed. Please visit, NJ Audubon Society for more information about the S.A.V.E. program and how you can help.
