Martha’s luminous watercolors capture Baltimore views from the working waterfront to the architectural beauty of Mount Vernon Place and the surrounding neighborhoods.
Commissioned works include the Sheridan Libraries for John Hopkins University; watercolors in celebration of the two new branches of the Enoch Pratt Free Library at Highland town and Orleans Street; Paintings of the classical statuary for the Peabody Institute’s 150th Gala; a holiday painting for Gordon Feinblatt Law Firm; The Center Club view from the 16th floor harbor scene in the Legg Mason Building ; and paintings of The Library Company of the Baltimore Bar, Mitchell Court House.
The watercolors focus on the architectural landscape, still life’s and interiors coupled with dramatic color, light and design of these objects. Industrial symbols serve as an abstraction of the human condition in time. The watercolors are more about line, movement and pattern, shape being secondary. The quest is to capture the warmth and glow of color in day and night light with the freshness of watercolor.
