About Lisa Bliss Rush

Lisa Bliss Rush "An artist should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except when exposed by the light." - Leonardo da Vinci

As an artist working exclusively on black paper, I completely understand this quote of da Vinci's. Each colored pencil work I create begins as a shadowy sketch - - a faint impression of what is to come. With each layer of pencil applied the subject emerges, bit by bit, until the full revealing transpires. I begin each piece with the final work already visible in my mind's eye, yet the journey of the grand revealing both delights and surprises me still.
