painting in dutch: erin spencer

i first found erin spencer's work while looking for a beautiful and meaningful wedding gift for one of my very dearest friends. when i came across her paintings of the sea it was love at first sight. the heavy textured brush strokes evoke all of the unrest of the sea but with a spectacular feeling of calm. erin painted the most beautiful harbor scape of portsmouth, nh -the town where my friend and her husband met and live- as a wedding gift for them.
her landscapes are incredibly beautiful too, they always seem to hover on the edge of verdancy. I love the palette of these.  i regularly check erin's gallery, painting in dutch and etsy shop. she is always working away at something and its exciting to keep up with her and her work.
