This artist is well-known for the generous layers of paint in her work, giving it richness and depth. It is clear to see in this wonderfully colourful piece, her attention to detail. She has captured a landscape typical of the area, of marshy beaches, overlooked by what could be an historic house, or a contemporary one. Either way, the occupants have an outstanding view of sweeping vistas and sky. Enjoy the view, including the clouds that are so real they look like they will have moved by the time you look again. A lovely piece for any space!
Framed in a solid wood, natural frame to suit the scene. 13 1/2" x 25 3/4". Available in-gallery only at 27 Ainslie St. N., Cambridge.
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.”
