This could be a group of homes, or neighborhoods in many cities in my country or yours. But this is a scene in Seattle, Washington, in a very old part of the city. While walking threw this quaint part of the city, with all its very steep hills, I came across these homes, seeming to be stacked upon each other. I was struck by the interesting angles made by the walls, roofs, and strong sunlight. I painted this painting with only simple pure colors that are layered upon each other, much like the houses and the shadows, to make more complicated colors as well as darks and lights.

This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know Nancy

Nancy Muren likes to slow down and appreciate the unique qualities in overlooked items. She feels that in our rapid lifestyle, and with all our new gadgets, “we might miss something very interesting and beautiful.” That’s what she hopes to portray in her paintings. She also finds inspiration in her four grown children. When she’s not painting, she enjoys walking, swimming, riding her bike and hunting for treasures at thrift stores and estate sales. She currently lives in California. Fun fact: on her dad’s side, her ancestors were on the first boat of settlers headed to the shores of Quebec, Canada.
