Debra Van Tuinen is an artist who is making things more beautiful. Her work consists of delightful contemplations of a twilight feel... The work evokes a tone ranging from Whistler to Rothko, and it acts to invite our contemplation and meditation. Gold leaf is evocative as twilight sun, as precious as gold. In general it makes the rest of the painting look poor, but Debra has created a miracle with how she used it.
