Marla Greenfield

Though she also paints landscapes, interiors and architectural subjects, Massachusetts based watercolor painter Marla Greenfield has a particular focus on still life and florals.

Her still life subjects are often presented in compositions that bring them close and have a dynamic that sets parts of objects on the painting’s edge, partially out of view. If not done carefully, this could lead a viewer’s attention out of the image, but Greenfield handles it with apparent ease, unerringly bringing your eye back into the composition.

All of her subjects are presented with crisp clarity, bright but naturalistic color and strong value relationships.

In addition to the gallery of images on her website, you can also find a portfolio of her work on Artwork Archive, where they are presented with information on availability and price.

    Olives look sooo big, I wish they be the plum size.

    There is a thoughtful stillness to her work that is not often found in work that has this amount of detail.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Tim. I agree.

    Pleasantly surprised to see the colander elevated. The amber glass stops me dead in my tracks.
