About Selena Midden

Dear Art Enthusiast,

 My loft studio is a desirable retreat from this 2020 year’s trials 


Experimenting with acrylics fast drying mode I feel the knowledge of oil paints helps me to achieve effects in my paintings. Besides 5x7” there are 8x10”s.


Of course, pastel is still my passion. I completed “View in the Sky” 10x13” as a commission piece. Taking over 1/2 of the year my Colorado client was delighted when received. 

Springfield, IL has a vast selection of subjects to paint. So I look forward to sharing many more paintings.


As each day passes, may art bring Joy!

Selena
