Write Up: The natural world filled Louisa McElwain with the energy and power that drove her impulse to paint, a dynamic expressed in the thick impastos of her palette knife landscapes of New Mexico. McElwain would leave anything that drifted onto her plein air works and would often introduce bits of found objects, seeking to create textures that would connect her vision of the scene she painted with the scene itself.
