If you love birch trees, and the soft warm light of a summer's eve, this may be the painting for you. The mauves, blues, greens and tiny hits of other colours in this detailed view looking out on the water from a stand of birch trees, are at once confident, yet tender. This is a painting that juxtaposes the sheltered setting of the viewer with the expanse of the lake beyond, and invites calm. Enjoy this piece in any small spot waiting for an inspired work of art.
Original oil on wrapped canvas, 12" x 12" Available in-gallery only at 27 Ainslie St. N., Cambridge. Delivery available within 40 km of Cambridge for a fee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
Jean Marshall, an oil painter born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada has not forgotten her love (and fear) of the rocky coastal waterways and the rugged cliffs, the poetic streams and the little waterfalls. She is one of the original members of the Plein Air Adirondack School of Painters founded by Publisher, Eric Rhoads. An invitation from the Publisher to join the group of masters and their friends took her work beyond the studio to the mountains & valleys of New York. Jean has taken classes from numerous renowned painters. She won the Bronze Award 2015 and the Curators Award 2019, at the Homer Watson Gallery and Museum. One of her paintings recently won a global competition and was subsequently published in an art book. Her work is collected across North America, and most recently a piece was sent to the Yukon.
Jean always using the best supplies that hold archival quality for her collectors and their families to own through generations because as Jean says “Art has meaning beyond words, filled with so many stories to see. It’s documentation.”
