We were diving around San Francisco Bay and encountered this bright yellow Victorian house. Imagine being the owner back in the day and having this summer or weekend retreat to get away from busy life. What a place to raise curious, boisterous children! I bet many such families have lived there. When I am not exploring, I am painting. I use a method of layering my paints; letting one glaze dry completely before I apply the next can change the color. The effect can be subtle or profound. The image size is 18 x 24" with a margin on all sides. This piece 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.
