Falina Sinopah Artworks


Plein Air Paintings from Glacier National Park and Surrounding Areas, Montana


These oil plein air paintings are completed on scene, from life, in a single session, during wilderness excursions both humble and grand in the artist's local area at the Crown of the Continent. Falina carries her handmade miniature pochade box along on all her hikes and climbs as well as daily outings to both remote and familiar areas. She finds the journey to the vistas to be an integral part of the process to center her into a fit state to complete this challenging art form. She works with oils on small 3x5, 4x6, or 5x7 pre-toned carton paper to paint directly from life in all the elements. This deliberate practice is performed to gain mastery of effortless observation and painting itself. Falina focuses on what IS and attempts to translate it directly to paint in order to render a moment that she had the privilege to be truly present for.

Many of these original plein air paintings are available for sale in the Shop on this website under the Collection: Original Plein Air Paintings.  New artworks are added seasonally.  Come back to see more and follow on Instagram to see works in progress!
