Food for the Soul…


“I love to evoke the delicious essence of a place when I paint “en plein air”. My medium is watercolor. 

I use a rich texture of paint to bring out very vibrant colors in my paintings. Adding charcoal, ink and pencil 

enhances feelings of lyrical calligraphy on the watercolor paper or watercolor canvas. Painting outside excites me … 

Breezes on my face, the sounds of a gurgling brook and chirping birds, smelling lavender fields or the smells of food 

wafting from an incredible restaurant, seeing the grey-greens of an ancient cathedral or a rust-colored adobe casita … 

My heart sings when I’m painting and I find myself smiling most of the time.”

Nancy Dean Kreger’s Art is “Food for the Soul”
