About

'Down to the Sea' is a framed oil on linen board painting created by American artist Nancy Franke in 2017. Set inside a handmade frame finished with 14k gold, the painting depicts a simple house with slanted roof marked with a large chimney on its side, indicating that we must be in a region that sustains some rain and gets rather cold in the winters. The palette is made of browns, greens and whites with hints of reds. The painting is signed lower right and measures 9"H x 12"W without its frame.

With the looseness and spontaneity of her technique, Franke’s paintings are warm, inviting and intimate. Her own wonderful sense of style and taste is reflected in her subject matter and the compositions are interesting, spontaneous and a little rough around the edges. It is this edginess that keeps her paintings fresh and energetic, just like the artist herself.

Franke says, “I seek to capture the flow of light in a lively and fresh manner. I paint primarily from life, and enjoy the challenge of catching the moment.”
