Fine Art Painter

Blue African Lilies of the Nile

8″ x 10″ Oil

Martha uses only top professional grade oil paints on a prepared support of at least 3/8-ths inch thick (only rarely does she use a stretched canvas because when painting en plain air, light shines through a canvas where it does not penetrate a board).  Her boards may be of composite, or birch, and a few will have a linen surface.  She creates the majority of her boards herself, purchasing birch at a local high quality lumber yard, cutting them to size and preparing their surfaces usually with PVA Size.

Martha found these exotic flowers growing in a high school friend’s garden, on the Island of Hawai’i.
