We saw this scene while hiking  in Colorado. The layers of color as my eyes traveled up the mountain reminded me of the layers of watercolor.  Imagine puddles of transparent watercolor, pulled by my brush, to mix rare colors, on Arches white watercolor paper. Then you can understand the Zen of watercolor painting. I use layers of watercolor over previous dry paint to make the perfect color. It is fascinating watching paintings come together over time before my eyes.

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.
