Artwork

A bright bouquet of chrysanthemums rests on a stack of quilts and blankets. Part of artist Nancy LaBerge Muren's continuing series of cheerful still lifes inspired by the colorful gardens in her neighborhood. On her daily walk, she scouts flowers and colors that catch her eye. Nancy then pairs these ideas with quilts, tablecloths, wall hangings, wool blankets, baby quilts and hand woven art she collects from estate sales and vintage stores. "I love color and pattern," says Nancy. "It is exciting to find a treasure that will be featured in my next painting."

Thank you Very much Ms. Gibbs this was painted from a trip to Tennessee. The next day there was such a rain that all the color drained out of the leaves. I was so lucky to have this painting. The show at the Taos Gallery at the Davis Art Center went very well!

Hi S, Chamers you are correct this is a Pacific NW sky over a lavender field found in the hills above Silverton, Oregon. Many people rent this field before it is harvested to celebrate the weddings and say their vows to each other. There is also a place for a reception afterward. thank you, Nancy

The sky in the picture Lavender is so real. I think it looks so much like a pacific northwest sky. Love the details on the flowers as well.

Hi K Gibbs Thank you for your comments, it is great to hear from someone who understands the use of contrast and color.

The painting "The Hike" was inspired by my child hood. When I was about 14 a friend and I hiked the some Pacific Coast Trail for 8 days with a group put together by the local science museum. The beautiful scenes has been with be ever since. The painting "Teal Travels" was inspired by a trip to Florence Italy to visit my daughter. The brightly colored walls gave me such an opportunity to paint a color I love with large uncontrolled brushstrokes to mimic the fading stucco so common in Florence.

Well thank you very much K Gibbs. California does have some very lovely country. I am always having to stop and take pictures.

I love this painting of "Turnips" It is just beautiful! I think fruits and vegetables are so beautiful. I find myself taking photos at farmers markets and such. You have captured the intricacies of each individual turnip and their distinctiveness while maintaining a bright and cheerful simplicity.. Every root and the edge of the box etc. show amazing talent using this medium. My son and his wife are farmers and would enjoy and appreciate this painting as well..Very Fun! Renee Bedgood.

Hi K Lab, Thank you for the comments I love to hear about the paintings that observers and buyers might find pleasing! I was hiking up in the mountains north of mount hood in the spring. The wild flowers and the butterflies were having a party.

Nancy LaBerge Muren 4/19/2016 | 3:52 PM

Hi K Gibbs Thank you for your remarks. I love bright color also I think my eyes have a special relationship to color.

commentsThe Hike
K LaBerge 4/10/2016 | 9:02 PM

Nancy, this is a beautiful painting. May I ask where you were when you painted this scene? I like knowing where you get your inspirations for paintings and what interested you about your subject. Your "Teal Travels" is also interesting to me.

Looking at this provides an automatic escape. I want to be in the foothills below the peaks.

Hi Kevin, Thank you for your question. I have sold paintings of sail boats and ships on the water like that ship in Newport Bay, Oregon. I think I will have to paint more.

commentsHomeward Bound
K LaBerge 4/3/2016 | 11:45 PM

Nancy, I noticed the boat #2 painting was an Oregon location (Newport)? Are there any other Oregon locations like this one? (I like it too)

Nancy LaBerge Muren 4/3/2016 | 12:17 PM

Please feel free to add a comment or ask a question I love to here from you! in my newest painting the cows were on the way home to be milked at dusk. I was at a private school's farm in San Rafael just north of San Francisco, CA. it was such a beautiful natural sight.

Nancy LaBerge Muren 8/2/2015 | 9:44 PM
