Project Name: Porter Performs
She has won acclaim for her unique paintings. The works of Colleen Goodwin-Chronister have been collected by patrons across the country as well as included in many private collections. Now she brings her work to the central Oregon Coast.
“Porter Performs” as the title of her Dancing With Sea Lions entry, suggests movement in the various performers portrayed. The design, as in a true performance, is set in theater-style against a stark background with well-lit figures using repeating color harmonies and rippling ribbons of sheet music for dramatic flair to join each scene.
Painting has been Goodwin-Chronister’s passion since the age of eight. She earned her BA and Teaching Credential from California State University Fresno. As a painter whose contemporary realism style allows creation of exquisite oil paintings, her meticulous attention to detail transcends the ordinary and has a distinctive magical quality. Colleen is equally at ease whether it is creating paintings in her studio or large-scale exterior murals.
