Article on Mary Louise Porter and the Louisiana Life Magazine.
Porter’s search for the “beauty and emotion” in the local landscape calls to mind what Monet once said about his own work: “My only desire is an intimate fusion with nature.” - John Kemp
Mary Louise Porter is among 37 artists chosen by John R. Kemp to be featured in his new book, Expressions of Place – the Contemporary Louisiana Landscape. Kemp writes, “Porter is a painter whose bright palette is guided as much by her imagination as it is by the colors of the seasons and the natural landscape of the Cane River and the glades and wooded hills of northwest Louisiana.”
Two of the Northwest Louisiana artists, Mary Louise Porter Karen Schmidt, are featured in the book "Expressions of Place".
