“deciding everything is falling into place perfectly as long as you don’t get too picky about what you mean by place. Or perfectly.” brian andreas
betsy brandon woodyard is a Helena, Arkansas native who now lives in downtown Little Rock and looks at life through rose colored glasses (which actually makes it hard to tell what color paint she is putting on the canvas, but c’est la vie). Her canvases are usually large and the medium is acrylic with heavy organic use of minerals and metals. Each piece is unique and highly dramatic, which coincidentally are the adjectives betsy’s husband uses to describe her. Her style of painting is best understood by analyzing her favorite quote above.
Betsy’s paintings often feature copper…a metaphor for our lives, she says. “Copper gets its color from who or what has touched it and the amount of heat applied. You can’t MAKE it turn out a certain way…you can only wait and see what evolves. In the same way, we are effected greatly by the people we’ve encountered and the amount of heat our lives have endured.”
A 2012 Heart Ball Artist, Betsy’s paintings have also been featured in the Arkansas Times, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and Soiree’s Boom Magazine. She is a consistent top seller at the annual Arkansas Arts Center Museum School Sale and was one of the artists included in the recent Five Women Exhibit (as well as several other exhibit venues). She has also done graphic art work for the Arkansas Arts Center.
Her paintings can be found at Red Door Gallery in North Little Rock, 3715 John F. Kennedy Blvd. Their number is 501.753.5227
