Pair 9: Gorbacheva Ekaterina and Dotty Hawthorne

Ekaterina Gorbacheva

Russia Khabarovsk

The academic style of the artist. I paint with traditional materials. Favorite stories: sea and nature.

Creativity is the soul of the world.

Dotty Hawthorne

Portland, OR

As a studio and plein air painter, Dotty has followed her passion for painting most of her life. She majored in art in college, was a gallery owner, participates in plein air festivals, demonstrates her work, and has won awards in local and national juried shows.

I am continually fascinated by the complexity of created forms, the interaction of light, shadow and atmosphere and the subtleties of color My hope is to share artwork featuring the natural world in which we live so that it will foster in the viewer a deep joy in the privilege of being here, encourage a deeper visual knowledge and develop a longing to preserve the natural gifts of creation.
