Beth Winfield

CALL OF THE WEST


Beth Winfield has made several painting journeys into the American Southwest. Most recently, Beth traveled to the “Valley of the Gods” in southern Utah. It’s a beautiful area filled with monoliths and rock formations. It posed a challenge with storms rolling in bringing rain and wind gusts up to 60 mph, but Beth spent days capturing the overpowering rocks and fleeting light, painting out of the back of her car. She then traveled into the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico and surrounding areas finding additional interesting subjects. Driving into this vast Western landscape is Beth’s favorite things.

The recent events that changed all our lives during the pandemic had artists staying in or close to home for many months. Fortunately for artists living in the Bay Area, it was easy to be inspired by the beauty surrounding us.


One afternoon, the way the trees cast some lovely shadows on a downtown Benicia bakery stopped me in my tracks and I knew I was going to paint that.
