Fine Art Painter

Colorado Homestead

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 was inspired to paint “Orange Poppies” when she saw many beautiful spring flowers recently at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

“This painting is currently hanging in the Colorado State Capitol, on a four year loan from the artist.”
