En plein air

You are looking at:

Nona Jane Siragusa’s landscape and seascape paintings capture the clear and intense light of the Central Coast. Among California’s Impressionist-inspired painters, Nona Jane is trained to paint “en plein-air” or out-of-doors.

Taking advantage of the bright light and warm climate, she seeks to catch the fleeting moments of specific natural light as it bathes the surrounding landscapes and seascapes. Nona Jane believes that the biblical analogy of light as the creative instrument is appropriate to the land and ocean of the Central Coast—for without that unique light and the divine energy it represents; the land would not exist.

Nona Jane Siragusa lives in Morro Bay and paints her Central Coast landscapes and seascapes in oils on canvas. She also makes giclees of her work on canvas and archival paper.
