Past & Present

This series began in 2006 as a meditation on personal history. Layers of organic imagery, natural and figurative, appear and disappear, much like memories of a familiar place. The process of layering is an important element to reinforce the idea of “layers of the mind,” forgotten and remembered.

  1. Oh my goodness…your use of oil paints and mixed media is breathtaking!!! I want to take a painting class with you now! It takes quite a bit of patience to work with oils, especially with results like those you’ve shown above. I am in awe right now.


  2. Lisa, I am thinking of commissioning you to do a triptych of the Farm in Vincennes. Give it some thought and when might be good time to visit and explore settings.

    • Of course! This summer would be a great time to work on the paintings. Maybe we can get over there in July or early August. Do you have a size in mind or did you like the size of the Leroy Lakes? We can chat more soon!

      • I was thinking this summer might work well for you and July/early August sounds good. I think the Leroy Lake sizes is a good start! When do you start back teaching?

  3. As the proud owner of your work, “Jennifer: collage, mixed media,” I must say that commissioning you to paint a piece for my home was nothing short of genius. Each day, I am in awe of the painting you created just for me. It is stunning. I am so proud to share your talent with everyone who enters my home. I will treasure my very first Lisa Johnston Hancock original always.
