Beautiful trees waited to be discovered, as I hiked high above the Pacific Ocean, at the Presidio in San Francisco. This former military post has trails and scenic overlooks. Strong ocean winds push and bend stunted trees molding them into the unusual timbers they are. I painted lightly in transparent watercolor. With the use of white paper, and glazes of sheer paint, one color glows through another creating a luminous effect. I painted on paper mounted to wood panels and sealed with clear varnish.

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.
