Martiis known for bright, vibrant colors in her realistic watercolor paintings. In her words, "I love the process of composing, drawing and preparing an idea for my watercolors. I am thankful that I can enjoy the creations of God, not just in nature, but among ourselves and the things we help create. I love to observe nature. I want the viewer to see what I see when I put those marks on paper."
This month we are featuring Marti's "Barnyard Series". The Gentle Barn, an animal rescue mission in Missouri and Tennessee is her source of inspiration. "Capturing the expressions on the animals faces made this series a lot of fun."
"Seeing the light and shadows, shapes and patterns in flowers, animals and nature before the paint goes on the paper, then watching the paint and water meet the paper is all part of my painting process"
