Wendy first experimented with her “Mediation Paintings” at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design as a painting major. Originally, they were loosely based on the changing seasons around her beloved home, Green Hills Farm.
As her confidence grew she released all figurative bounds and let the paint dance freely about the canvas. Lyrical and joyous the paintings are vivid, thick oil paint. Transparent backgrounds with opaque highlights create movement and light.
Recent sell out shows in Aspen, Vail and Beaver creek have inspired Wendy to work on a larger scale which resulted in a major acquisition by a new hospital in her region.
Her meditation paintings were chosen because of their uplifting ability to take people out of a stressful situation and transport them into a floating world of color and vivid light.
Wendy Sue Schaefer Miles is excited to expand her vision with this series and create entire environments in personal or commercial spaces.
To be a part of this exciting opportunity.
