Tree & Shadow by Marsha Donahue 6×6″ Oil
Meet artist Marsha Donahue! What a treat, right? If you don’t already know of Marsha’s work, be sure to check out the website. Beautiful paintings! This little painting caught my eye right away, it’s the wonderful orange undertone, especially against the darkness of the tree. WOW. Talk about dramatic. I love this! This tiny painting packs a powerful punch!
Autumn Dolby by Marsha Donahue 66×88″ Oil
The sheer talent of some people! Just look at this fabulous (large!) painting. The detail, the stillness of the water in areas, the movement of the sky, the feeling of the sun. Beautiful, just beautiful! That dead tree on the left is a favorite! Oh, how I love those trees, they’re so picturesqe! Beautiful painting. Be sure to check out Marsha’s work, I’m sure you will love it as much as I do!
Read a bit about Marsha, from her gallery’s website:
The owner and founder of North Light Gallery, Marsha Donahue has degrees in the fine arts from American University and the Maine College of Art. After many years of working in galleries both in Washington, DC and Portland, Me, she opened her own in Millinocket, ME in 2004 where she could paint the landscape she loved. She was influenced early on by Winslow Homer and painted in the Adirondacks for several years during the summers before returning to Maine in 1985. At some point John Singer Sargent’s influence took over and never quit. She also shows her work at the Gallery at Somes Sound on Mount Desert Island.
