Artwork

This painting was inspired by the road that leads to Mount Rainier National Park in Washington. Sunlight sifts through the trees and creates shadows across the snow, the road, and the thick vegetation. The forest is untouched and natural, except for the historical road that leads to the summit. The painting was created with oil paint on a gallery wrapped canvas. The edges are painted black and it is ready to hang. 

Nancy Merkle

Tacoma, Washington

Nancy Merkle's process begins with a glimpse of color, a flicker of light, a pattern, or a texture. Elements swirl in her mind for hours, sometimes days, sometimes weeks before a design clicks and is transferred to canvas. With the canvas in front of her, she works intuitively -- a mark here, a mark there, a little touch of color, a bit of texture -- until she is satisfied and declares the work finished. Currently Nancy's work leans toward abstraction; she doesn't paint the world as it is, but as she wishes it were. Bold colors and loose brush strokes are her goal. When she's not making art, Nancy travels the Pacific Coast with a bicycle strapped to the car and "curiosity in my back pocket."
