watercolor with pen and ink, 12x16 inch
copyright 2011 MaryAnn Cleary
This is a technique that I do not typically do nowadays. Most of my work is in oils or pastels. At one time, I used to work only in this media. If fact, my first paintings used watercolor and pen and ink. A few months ago, a friend asked me if I would do a piece of artwork of the home that they were building. A log home. I had been to their place...the old place and I loved the area with its magical beauty.
This is my interpretation of that magical place. I have yet to see the new cabin, but I am sure that it still maintains the beauty and spirituality of the area. I remember sitting under a huge pine tree, soaking up the sun's rays, listening to the quiet as the silence and beauty soothed my troubled spirit. This is my interpretation of their magical place.
