LANIE WIDMAR is a former architect, who after many years in the corporate design world, decided to focus her work on painting watercolors. Originally from Laguna Beach, California, Widmar now resides in Altea, Spain. Widmar's paintings are a result of experiences in the field that inspire her awe in the beauty of the Western and European landscapes.  She is particularly drawn to ancient ruins, villages, and monuments that mark a historic place in mankind's journey on earth.


Her work is represented by UGallery, San Francisco, USA.  


Artist Statement


"Painting realistic abstracts brings a sense of excitement into my work. Watercolor paint is an ideal medium for my inner artist, as it awakens a sense of adventure and spontaneity.  With a minimum of pictorial imagery to suggest reality, I strive to portray the essence of a scene, allowing the viewer to participate with his/her imagination."
