Marianna M. Duford ...A Fine Artist with wanderlust

   “Art Critics”            
                 Painted during the Douglas Land Conservancy Plein Air Invitational  2014     8x16 oil    SOLD

A bit of a gypsy and lifelong artist, Marianna, brings her love of the outdoors to her art and everything that she does.  She doesn't limit her artwork to just one medium and likes to let the inspiration decide whether it would be better in watercolor, oils or acrylics. 

She has a painterly style of expressing herself called Impressionistic Realism.  Capturing light and color to reproduce form to create feelings is her constant challenge whether painting in her studio or in the great outdoors.

As an artist with wanderlust Marianna's love of plein air painting and travel have been the perfect complement to each other.   Art and travel forays have taken her from Italy to Africa, Florida to California and in between, the South Island of New Zealand to Tasmania and back again.  

Always, upon returning to her mountain home in Colorado, she wonders why she had to go so far to be inspired  when  she  is  surrounded  by  beauty every day of the year!
