The Almost Home Trees, Nan Henke, Watercolor on Watercolor Ground, framed, 24x36"
This painting by Nan Henke creates such a story within itself and within the hearts and minds of the viewers. Knowing or imagining the feelings that would be present when almost home, when home is just around the bend of trees, just down the road. Whether in actuality or in our imaginations, Nan Henke takes us there in this beautiful painting.
Watercolor on watercolor ground is a very unique medium which most painters do not employ. A brief study of the process immediately increases our respect for the preparation of the canvas required, for the work of blending colors (have you studied the sky very closely?), and for the brush strokes in the trees, grasses, and the road that she has brought to you.
Looking closely, you can imagine that Nan Henke has spent much time in similar places, in the hills, on hill country roads.....and, if you imagine that, you are correct. She does spend much time on the family ranch in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and that time has greatly enhanced her capacity to capture such details in this painting.
