About

Figurative watercolor in mainly green from Mary Robertson whose paintings Wayne Thiebaud calls "Joyous and meditative colorful simulations of contentment and sacred play.” Steeped in the Bay Area figurative movement, Mary Robertson’s oeuvre focuses on an area she knows intimately—Northern California's Russian River, where she has been painting for over 25 years. The region’s beaches, umbrellas, floats, and figures are iconic in the quiet and intimate paintings of Robertson, but it is the afternoon Bay Area light that takes center stage, as it interacts with the landscape to create the real magic. Her oil paintings and watercolors have an affinity with the American Realists, the Impressionists, and the Pointillists such as Seurat. When taking in a Robertson scene, there is a sense of time standing still, and being bathed in a lazy California summer glow that doesn’t fade. Also included in the exhibition is a series of chili pepper still life compositions that the artist calls “Hotheads,” and western landscapes influenced by Maynard Dixon that also carry her signature simplicity and delight at nature, its quietness and dazzling western light.  Wonderful on its own or hanging paired with the companion painting, 'Neighbor's No. 3' shown in additional images. Image is 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. Framed (museum quality clear maple frame), 15 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches.
