I got caught by the pond -- the beautiful blue of the reflected sky and the bright, near-white of the dry reeds. The coppery tones of the submerged reeds and the tree reflections from across the pond complemented the aquamarine water. This piece is on masonite board, varnished, and comes ready to hang in a handmade frame.

Getting to Know Julia

Julia paints her impressionistic nature scenes en plein air (outside). “I wander for awhile, looking for an image or scene that feels right–that strums some inner chord,” says the artist. Her gestural scenes of streams, trees, and cattails are delicate glimpses of the serene outdoors. The brushwork in Julia’s paintings is fueled by the vibrations of natural beauty and the energy of changing light. Julia keeps a small studio in her home, but her true studio is her local Maryland parks and trails.
