Photo-realism, anyone? I am not a painter, but I can only imagine how time consuming this type of painting is with ONE image to paint. Pakayla Biehn is what happens when someone takes it to the next level, or to the second exposure. Pakayla paints the dual imagery of nature and humanity that result in whimsical landscapes of the imagination. 

Her concepts are personal and her discipline, obviously, incredibly honed. For fun, I sometimes imagine Pakayla’s paintings manifested through a bright light in her chest that pours out a stream of color and magical images of nature onto the canvas. I just can’t wrap my mind around the execution so it helps.
