I was inspired to paint this as  I was walking through this forest north of San Francisco and along the bay. Wild turkeys were gobbling, I saw wood peckers and heard many song birds and the mother deer and her yearling were almost as close as the are in the painting. Flowers were blooming every color. It is hard to believe that this quiet beauty is so close to one of the larger cities in the world. 

This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display. The image size is 15"H x 20"W.

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.
