The paintings in “Trees on Patience Brook” are the result of two years of careful observation of the brook that runs near her studio in Wellfleet, MA. Both calm and expressive— calm from the nature of the place itself and Nora’s unavoidable sensitivity to it, and expressive from her naturally intense painterly approach to representing place— Speyer aims to capture the essence of landscape that runs through all individuals. She looks to capture it optically as well as emotionally; analytically and psychologically.
