Versatility is one of the hallmarks of Anne Belov's art. Working in oil on linen or panel, with egg tempera, or with etching and mono prints, the artist's main concern for the past 35 years has been the portrayal of light, structure, color and the specificity of place and time.

Landscape, still life, and interior imagery are all part of her repertoire. Using time-tested techniques, Belov finely crafts her paintings and custom finishes her frames as well.

Anne Belov continues to explore the ancient medium of egg tempera, using egg yolk to bind powdered pigment in order to create the her colors. The paint is applied in many thin, translucent layers, using small brush strokes. The finished painting achieves a lustrous quality, which she finishes with oil glazing to bring an additional richness to the finished painting.

Anne has traveled to Europe several times and each trip she has been inspired by the art history, architecture, landscape and light she's observed. The patinas of the old buildings, fading and peeling posters on a wall, the dimly lit streets and alleys at dusk, all became compelling subject matter on a recent trip to Italy to study the luminous technique of egg tempera painting.

Gardening is one of Belov's great loves,
that continuously inspires many of her paintings, as do her home surroundings, which she masterfully portrays in a variety of light. "I try to portray the bond I feel with my surroundings, whether it's the home front or the temporary port of my travels. Each group of paintings that I do is a connected story, with the subject of one painting feeding the next."

Most of Anne Belov's paintings are oil on linen, due to the depth and luminosity the artist finds with oil paint, and which particularly suits her subject matter. 

"I start by gluing Belgian or Italian linen onto hardboard with rabbit skin glue," Belov said. "I then make an egg-oil emulsion rabbit-skin-glue gesso according to traditional recipes. The resulting painting ground is more absorbent than acrylic or oil-based gessoes.
