Chattanooga Lights, 12 x 16 in, mixed media on watercolor paper, ©2012 Julie Galante.
Greetings from the United States. I’ve been in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for the past week, producing my first stateside artwork in over 10 years. It’s been kind of like a miniature artist’s residency, and a nice chance to work outside of my home studio in Germany. Also, a good chance for me to re-learn paper sizes in inches.

Scenic downtown Chattanooga has provided the inspiration for this new group of cityscapes. These are mixed-media pieces on watercolor paper, a decidedly more portable and less toxic set-up than oil paints would be. Very handy when your workspace is someone’s dining-room table.

This work will stay in the US for now, and it is available for sale (which means lower shipping prices for US-based collectors). See all my available Chattanooga artwork on Etsy.
