Artist's Statement
Marilyn Fairman - Plein Air Landscape Artist
 
Nature is my inspiration.  For over 30 years, I have been drawn outside to paint "en plein air" throughout all the seasons of the year.  My focus is to paint "that special light which transforms a landscape and speaks of a time of day that will quickly pass.
