Artists' Palettes: Elise Toups

Can you tell what medium you are looking at above? All of the artists who've participated in the palette series have sent me such inspired images and Baton Rouge painter Elise Toups is no exception. Elise says she typically scrapes oil paint off of her glass palette and saves it in a metal tin. Here she captures it for us.

Sometimes she works with shades of gray...

but often she uses bold color.

As mentioned the other day, Elise is represented by gallerist Ann Connelly. The artist earned her B.S. in Psychology with a Minor in Painting from Louisiana State University, and in 2005 she won first place at Art Melt.
