Congressman Mike Thompson (Democrat- St. Helena, Ca.) chose one of Flood’s paintings for his D.C. office: “Mendocino County History Maker’s”. The painting is shown behind Claudia in her Biography photo. Her work has become prized among private art collectors around the country.
In describing Claudia Flood’s work, the late Thomas Albright, Art Critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, described her work as “dramatic, bold and colorful”.
Every new painting is an adventure; I never know where I will end up!
A sketchbook and camera accompany me wherever I go: you never know when the perfect light or shadow are going to appear! I find that inspiration is more a state of mind rather than an external vision.
I can be presented with the perfect reflection on a lake, but if my mind, or should I say – my heart, isn’t into it, well it won’t translate into a good piece of art.
Kendall-Jackson of Sonoma County, CA commissioned Claudia to do the original art work for Kendall-Jackson’s Heirloom Tomato Festival, “Sleeping with Giants”. She was also commissioned to do an original painting of the Kendall-Jackson tasting room and gardens (the painting is on display inside the Tasting Room facility in Santa Rosa), and custom presentation boxes for wine and promotional items.
