Gloss:
Lillegraven focuses on the great open spaces of the West, composing her paintings to convey a sense of place and arouse the human senses. In The Old River Road, she caught sight of the winter sun setting over the Laramie River, and noticed, "for that one brief moment, the sweeping curves of the river, the glowing willows, the icy river and the long shadows all seemed to dance perfectly with one another."
