Elizabeth grew up in a rural area of the Eastern Shore of Maryland surrounded by marshes. Travel has great influenced her art, but this place has remained an important part of her life and art. She has painted this landscape in many versions, ranging from detailed impressions to broad views of the wetlands. In this piece, the scene appears realistic but is not a direct copy of the landscape, created with a looser application of paint.
This artwork is framed in a simple natural wood floater frame. The dark float is 1/4" and the front surface of the frame measures 1/4". Depth is 2".

Growing up along the picturesque marshes of Maryland's Eastern Shore, artist Elizabeth Rickert developed a lifelong interest in capturing the harmony and beauty in nature. She seeks out new subject matter with travel, developing different working methods for each new series. Her ethereal birds' nests are painted from life while her glowing flax plant paintings come together from lots of reference photographs and detailed drawings. Elizabeth started her art career as a sculptor, which deeply influences the way she approaches forms and the effects of light. "Every subject in my paintings has a dimensional aspect," explains Elizabeth, "each containing a depth which you can just crawl into and get lost." In her free time, Elizabeth finds peace and inspiration in both nature and cooking. Her artwork has been showcased in The Boston Globe and American Art Collector magazines. Elizabeth graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Towson University in Maryland.
