Lillian Forziat’s oil paintings embrace a gentle juxtaposition of traditional realism and impressionism. She concentrates on capturing the beauty of everyday subjects in her still-life canvasses, and tranquil vistas in her landscapes and seascapes. With a style reminiscent of more traditional artists, her paintings strive to capture the subtle essences of both living subjects and human-fabricated objects in quiescent settings.
