Nancy Clark captures the essence of a moment in time with her open and expansive seascapes and landscapes. Her present Sea and Sky Series, which focuses on the horizon line and the effects of changing light, sets the stage for contemplating the mystery and calling of distant spaces. These images are inspired by reality but are created by allowing the painting to lead the way toward its own conclusion.
"Sometimes it feels like a dance, and I find myself swaying as I blend paints directly onto canvas with sweeping brush strokes."
Born and raised in rural Maine, Nancy draws boundless inspiration from the magnificent layered mountains, open fields, flowing rivers, sparkling ponds and wide open horizon of the ever moving ocean.
"My need is to paint! My hope is that the viewer will enjoy the feelings of spaciousness that these works evoke."
