Using expressive and abstracted brushwork to convey the nature of the scene, and relying on value and ambiguity of line to reveal the mystery of the landscape, I seek to evoke strong emotion from the viewer. Such ambiguity also invites personal interpretation and memories to emerge.
Bethanne Kinsella Cople attended The George Washington University where she enjoyed a classical fine art curriculum. An avid cross country horseback rider and skier, Bethanne loves expansive outdoor vistas. The landscape is a natural source of inspiration… both en plein air and in the studio.

Most recently, she received the “Award of Excellence” at the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters annual exhibit, Jackson Hole, Wyoming; the “Dick Bell Bookmaven” Award of Excellence, American Impressionist Society, Annual National Exhibit, Tennessee; “People’s Choice Award”, at the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, New York, New York exhibition; and twice won “Best Pastoral”, at the Plein Air-Easton Invitational Paintouts, Easton, Maryland. She also received “Honorable Mention” at the Eleventh and Fifteenth Annual Invitational Paintouts, Carmel, California; and “Best Traditional Painting,” 107th and 113th Annual Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Open Exhibition, National Arts Club, New York City.
