Margaret Gerding

“New England marshes remind me of a wonderful childhood, full of joy and freedom. For me they represent spaces that are safe, peaceful, and endless. In the marshes of New England I have always experienced a sense of “oneness” with nature. It is my place of belonging.”    –  Margaret Gerding

"Transcending Light is about capturing the magic of the evening sky at the last walk over the dunes. The clouds hold magnificent color, the water turns almost white, and the grasses glisten with gold touches." - Margaret Gerding

"Slow Dance is inspired by a site in Wells, Maine that I have been visiting weekly to study and paint. Through different seasons and all kinds of weather, there remains a sense of calm and rhythmic movement to this place. It is a place to pause and observe." - Margaret Gerding

"The coastal colors of fall, with its cadmiums and violets, make for a spectacular display on the marsh. Autumn Nightfall creates a record of this palette…and also offers a sense of the playfulness that goes on between the colors and how they move around the canvas." - MG

“Cold months in New England can be beautiful. The quiet, crisp days provide me   with time for absorbing all that nature has to offer."  –  Margaret Gerding
