This landscape painting depicts a rock formation at the mouth of Salt Creek on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. The creek spills into the Strait of Juan De Fuca at the Salt Creek Recreation Area. Evergreen trees stretch across the surface of the rocks and the tide from the strait moves in and out across the barnacle encrusted tidelands below. 

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."
