Doloris paints her Native Kansas once again after residing in Southern California for over 35 years as Painting Instructor and Professional Artist.
Doloris came to realize she could incorporate her love for the outdoors with her passion to paint landscape on location. As a member of the California Art Club Doloris painted with the group on location at the Historic Missions, Oceansides, orange groves and the wetlands.
Now in contrast back in Kansas, she is surrounded by her childhood wheat fields, oil wells, cattle and horses grazing, the Smoky Hill River and The Wetlands. All of which provide endless inspiration to paint. She also paints in California and Europe, primarily in The Netherlands where her daughter Tonja resides.
“Now changing seasons, diverse species of plants and animals, migrating birds, spectacular sunrises and sunsets and the prairie give a familiar voice to my expression” -Doloris Pederson
