Martha’s current landscapes are creating a new mixed media for her. They begin with a layer of underpainting in watercolor and finish with soft pastel on the top layer. She is trying to maintain a feeling for each medium while exploring techniques that develop from the combinations that evolve. “This is a very exciting way of working for me….including the fun of spraying the whole image with water periodically and then starting up again!”
Martha continues to search for her own expression through the natural world. Whether it is a landscape, an insect, or an intimate grouping of plant forms, she knows she will find meaning and inspiration there. She continues to find a spiritual connection with being in a setting surrounded by plant life, wind, and changing light.”I know that if I set up my paints anywhere out there, I will be rewarded with a creative gift coming back to me. Always”.
