Artist Statement :

Virginia Guilfoil Godfrey began her love affair with color many years ago.

“I fell in love with color, and the effect of light on color, over thirty-five years ago. I began expressing my love in the early 1970s. Initially, I experimented with several different mediums, pastels, acrylics, and oil, and in the end, oil won out. It possesses the intensity of color that I was looking for, and I enjoy the feel of the paint as my brush lays, and layers it, it upon my canvas.

“While much of my experience has come from self-teaching and experimentation, I have studied with several artists along the way, most notably Howard Carr and Diego Sanchez, Howard in Sedona, Arizona, during a workshop, and Diego here in Richmond through the HandWorkShop. I have also attended a painting workshop at La Fratta, in Tuscany, Italy.”

Virginia’s paintings range from realistic landscapes and still life to abstract. Her paintings have been juried into many shows across the eastern United States, and are owned by people living in California and Texas as well as the Midwest, New England, the South Eastern U.S., and Europe.
