Painting from life as much as possible, or from her own reference photos, Ms. Cain strives to capture the light and mood of the moment using brush and/or palette knife. "My wish is for my paintings to capture the light and life of the moment in an uplifting or inspiring way. The fleeting moments of light on a magnificent natural vista or on the petal of a rose; a simple smile, the still reflections on a pond. The joy of life."
