I drive past this farm every time I drive from Sacramento, CA to Sonoma, CA to visit my family. I have been wanting to paint this for a very long time and then just this week I figured out how I wanted to paint it. I was always interested in the different planes and rectangles that made up the walls and shadows on those walls. Right now the spring grass is full of life. The bright yellow-green is made even more so by using its complementary opposite color grey/purple, and some grey/blue to bring out the orange in the sunset. 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.
