Parkpoint Sonoma is proud to currently feature the artwork of:

ANINA P. FULLER

“A Parkpoint member since 1997 when I moved to Sonoma from New York, the club has provided a haven for swimming, yoga, and friendships. I enjoy sharing my painting passion with members. This is my third show of paintings here—2010, 2013, and now 2019.

Oil painting has been a lifelong passion. I was fortunate to have grown up in an extended family of artists and naturalists whose artistic expression was the unique medium of relating to the natural world and all that is experienced therein. Throughout my childhood and young adulthood, I was encouraged and guided by two uncles, Fairfield Porter (“a complex painter of note”) and Eliot Porter (“father of color photography”). I learned to “see” from their artistic example and also from my own experience of nature. Color is what interests me most. It is thrilling to paint orange and alizarin hawkweed opening to the sun, dazzling morning light reflected on the table, or a vast, still expanse of greenish blue. I see the brilliance in the ordinary things of life”. —Anina P. Fuller

“Anina Porter Fuller responds to nature with an informed eye and sensitive brush. Her work is evocative, it lingers in the mind.” —Elaine Benson, Gallery owner

“If you like the limpid lieder of Franz Schubert and the lyric poetry of Maine’s own Edna St. Vincent Millay, you will certainly appreciate the artwork of Anina Porter Fuller. Her oils are lyrics on canvas. There’s great emphasis upon greens in her art, in the grass, in the trees, in the bushes, even in the water in some cases…the shady walls into the woods are, to put it mildly, etudes in serenity. Schubert could have composed a song about Fuller’s work: Millay would have done as much in a poem.” —Ralph Pettee, writer
