Lucy Martin’s botanical paintings in gouache focus on the mysterious beauty of mushrooms and lichens found in the forests in all seasons. Lucy paints from life whenever possible. A new painting begins with a walk in the forest. Lucy collects her subjects and their surroundings—fungi, lichen, moss, fir cones, bark, decaying leaves, twigs—and brings them to her studio. She uses reference photographs for backgrounds or for objects too large to bring home. Her paintings reflect her lifelong connection with nature and her devotion to close observation.

Opening Reception on May 12th, on display May 7 – August 29, 2018.
