California Artist Ester Roi

One look at Ester Roi's (pronounced roy) paintings and you realize this artist is not reluctant to use vivid colors for her art! Warm and cool versions of red, blue, yellow, green, and everything in between are lavishly displayed in her paintings of pebbles in water. Although blue (specifically, cobalt blue) is her favorite color, she states: “I'm attracted to primary colors, vibrant and saturated. I play cool colors against warm ones, while shadows are always an excuse to introduce complementary colors. Like Claude Monet, I can testify that ‘colors are my day-long obsession, joy, and torment.’”

Susan Robinson is a freelance artist specializing in painting mineral and gem specimens as well as birds and wildlife.
