We often drive from San Francisco, CA to Seattle, WA, and we take different off roads to see new vistas and to find new painting subjects. I love when we drive around a bend in the road and find an unexpected, lovely view of something fascinating. Not only was there a cute little cottage tucked into the beginning of a very large hill, but the tall reaching fir trees had just enough trunk showing that it appeared to me that they were marching down the hill in a beautiful majestic manner. I grew up with these kinds of trees in my backyard, and they were very dear to me. 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.
