During a recent plein air outing near her home, Judy saw a man walking his dog on a downtown street. The brightly colored awning and decorative lamps, combined with the lines of the building and sidewalk, lead the eye toward the subject. The ornate church in the distance serve as a pleasing neutral backstop for the scene. This piece is on a watercolor panel sealed with archival matte varnish, providing the look of natural watercolor without the need for glass in a frame.
For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also leads watercolor workshops and runs a real estate business with her husband.

I have purchased three of Judy Mudd's watercolor paintings, and love each and every one. The first I purchased - Abandoned - hangs in my office and all who see it comment on how much they like it. Judy's diversity and ability to capture an essence - a feeling - in a painting sets her apart in my opinion. Thank you, Judy, for making my life a little brighter with your work!- T Jensen
I am thrilled to have your painting, "Back Roads 2" in my home! I grew up in upstate NY, near the Finger Lakes, and this scene is reminiscent of the area. I summer in upper MI also full of interesting back roads. I love watercolors and your painting style. The painting will be a source of joy for many years to come. Also kudos to UGallery. I have never ordered art work online. I was impressed with the prompt delivery and excellent packaging and all-around professionalism. Thank you again, Judy, and continued success!- J Moynihan
