1: Ann Chaikin grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently lives in Bellingham, Washington. She painted and drew as a child but had to give up her art in order to have time for school, family, work and singing, her other passion. Ann returned to painting after her retirement in 2005. She is an active member of the Studio UFO Group in Bellingham and studies with its founder, Trish Harding. | ARTIST STATEMENT I paint in oils because I love the richness of color and the way oil paint mixes and moves on the canvas. I like its mutability and freshness and how it becomes one of the subjects of my painting. I have been a photographer since my early teens. In my twenties I took a course from Ruth Bernhard, a renowned photographer in San Francisco. She taught me three lessons that I have carried forward into my painting: The subject is light. If you use color, color is one of your subjects. And you do not have to travel away from home to find subjects. Many of my paintings are inspired by my photographs. I begin with the photograph but soon the painting develops a life of its own and I leave the photo behind. The painting becomes its own inspiration. Living in the Pacific Northwest I am surrounded by amazingly rich light and color. Most of the paintings in this collection are of areas and subjects close to home. The series of desert paintings are from my travels to the deserts of southern Nevada and Utah.
