The Rocky Mountains & Nature
Watercolors by Lori Braverman
Inspired by her love of the Rocky Mountains, Lori Braverman’s dream was to capture the beauty of the mountains, which she loved to photograph on her visits, and to express the beauty she saw in the soft hues and translucent quality that the medium of watercolor allows.
“Much of my work is based on my photographs, and it is always fun and exciting
to see what comes through on paper and to see a painting take on a life of its own,” said Lori.
Lori, who passed away in July 2012, has exhibited at the Cresskill Library and at her own hometown library in Tenafly. Her family is proud to be holding this show in her honor and memory.
