About Mardie Dalzell Driftmier
As our world emerges from the recent pandemic, I'm shifting gears and taking on a new challenge - to create 100 small oil vignettes of my American River experience built from pleinair sketchbooks and journals, memories, and wanderings. This challenge asks me to step back, recommit to my creative process, listen and see with fresh eyes, lighten my step and my palette, heighten my colors, and paint landscapes that sing. I continue my search for motifs that peel away the layers of the river down to its mysterious force.
