Arts & Culture: Nature and art lovers alike will love the realistic paintings by artist Denette Schweikert.

A Florida native, Denette captures all the beauty and reality of her natural surroundings, as she says, "The prime focus of my large extremely realistic paintings is exploiting the small intricacies of nature in oils, painting them bigger than life with a punch of strong color and large ranges in value, magnifying the effect of light and exaggerating the power of depth."

Denette's large paintings allow the viewer a close-up view of nature, giving a more intimate glimpse of the natural world, "I am drawn to paint at such a large scale because it allows me to capture all the nuances of the shape and feeling of the flowers and foliage, and how they interact with the nature surrounding them. Magnifying the scale of the ordinary creates the extraordinary. The aggrandized format promotes detail that is abstracted, fanciful and contemporary, as opposed to a literal representation."

For Dennette, art is her second career, after her background in business. As an artist, Denette has won a number of awards and has become a valued member of the art world.

Denette's paintings have such depth and clarity as to appear nearly photographic. Her works of art make a lovely focal point or accent piece for any space and can sized to meet the customer's needs.

Inspired by elements of nature wherever she goes, Denette's richly colored and meticulously layered paintings are a brilliant expression of the natural world.
