Believing that a painting should reflect emotion and movement, Beth tries to convey a sense that the viewer is taking part in something that’s happening at that moment. Almost like you’re walking into the painting and taking part in it. You find yourself getting caught up in the feel of the wind, the thump of the dancer’s foot, or the sounds of the musician.
