While walking along the awe-inspiring cliffs of Mendocino, CA, I came across this old abandoned farm home and barn halfway covered by the amazingly abundant tall, golden grass. The view from the farmyard must have been an inspiration every evening for the occupants of the home. 

I paint with transparent watercolor paints building up layer of color to achieve the tones and hues I want. This painting is painted on Arches 140 lb watercolor paper with professional paints. This painting will need a mat and 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.
