Watercolor Wows


The honorable shakymuni, Guatama once said in a sutra that "happiness is an orange." While that has nothing to do with this artist, we do appreciate Marlies Merk Najaka’s watercolors that are available through her site as limited edition giclee prints for putting us in a Zen state of mind. Most of the work up there is floral, if you like that sort of thing, and the pieces lend themselves very nicely to watercolors.

Check out her page and buy a print. Najaka was also featured in a 2003 issue of American Artists Magazine


"My work is always as much about what I eliminate in my painting as it is about what I include." Because of the unique method in which she applies her watercolors, Marlies is able to achieve richly toned and extremely complex glazes of color. Until recently, Marlies’ work had been almost impossible to duplicate using conventional printing techniques. "With the advent of Glicee printing, I am finally able to recreate my art. Giclee prints incorporate all of the subtle nuances of my original art so well that it is rarely possible for me to distinguish one from the other". link

We’re not sure who wrote that review, but it certainly seems accurate in description of the few pieces we included for you in this post. Let us know if you like what you see.
