Trees make wonderful positive and negative spaces for the creation of an interesting and beautiful painting. In this piece, I put some opaque watercolors down first as a base to work off of with the layers of transparent watercolor on top. This gave a strong base for the heavy trees to be rooted to the earth while the transparent pigments painted on top enliven the original base. 

The piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display. The image measure 13" W x 18" H, leaving a white border for easy framing.

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.
