Governor\'s Gallery - Skip Thompson

None
8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Wednesday February 12
Artist Skip Thompson lives in the Arbuckle Mountain area of Southern Oklahoma and has been painting since 1980. She originally turned to painting as a form of relaxation during time off from her stressful job as a registered nurse. However, art quickly became her passion, and it wasn't long before it became her full-time career focus as well.

Thompson believes that art is not simply a matter of putting color or design on canvas. To her, it is an expression of which creates a mood and awakens a viewer's senses. She believes that every artist strives to have the viewer experience an emotion when viewing their work. Of her inspiration, Thompson says, "I am often in awe of the colors in an Oklahoma sunset, and I love to watch light filtering through a window, literally penetrating an object in its path. I then set out to capture that certain element which initially intrigued me so that I can pass the experience on to the viewer. Hopefully, my art uses color and canvas to bring feelings to life. There are a million and one reasons why I continue to paint, but it's mainly because art is my 'soul food'...it nourishes my soul."
