Louisa McElwainKen Ratner
In every generation there comes along a few special artists who have a profound affect on us. Louisa McElwain is certainly one of them.
Her vibrant and expressive work executed in her own unique style is a joy to behold. Long after seeing her pictures, they resonate in our mind, and we can only imagine the excitement and pleasure she felt in capturing the southwestern landscape that she loved so much.
I recently saw a video on her where she says that it's a tremendous honor that someone would be so touched by one of her pictures that that person would want to own it. Louisa McElwain was not only a great artist, but someone who clearly had a love for humanity.
Although she is no longer with us, her legacy lives on forever in the hearts of those who knew her, and to those that will know her through her art in future generations.
