Plein Air painting provides the perfect vehicle for expressing
Nancy’s love of the outdoors and awareness of nature’s beauty.
Nancy Fine’s interest in Plein Air painting has evolved over the past six years. In a transition from the detail of realism, Plein Air has provided the perfect vehicle for expressing her love of the outdoors and awareness of nature. The success of Nancy’s work is the result of not only her interpretation of the ever-changing natural surroundings, but of her use of lush colors, and freedom of brushwork and pallet knife.
How fortunate to have the 24,000 acre Pretty Boy Watershed in her backyard, a perfect spot to disappear for hours—just an artist, her easel, backpack, and her dog, Luna. Whether it’s a beaver pond, a stand of trees in winter, or a rushing stream in spring, Nancy finds a way to connect. From time to time, she is approached by passersby who observe her doing her artwork and want to buy her paintings.
