I went out to a park looking for a river scene today, but found this beautiful view of sunlit woods instead. It was very very hot, and somehow I imagine that the vivid yellow tones makes this clear. This piece is on braced masonite board, varnished, and comes ready to hang in an artist-made white hardwood float 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.
