Marcia Molnar is known for paintings representing her life in Arizona. This painting is entitled, “Storm Trekkers”. It is oil on linen and framed. The painting has a striking landscape and sky..and a few cows in the distance!
In 2000, Marcia began to experiment with subjects as grand as a sunset in Sedona to the simplicity of pears on a shelf. She has been influenced by Ed Mell, George O’Keffee, and Maynard Dixon.
Marcia says of her art:
“It’s important that my work reflect who I am and what I love. I will always be sitting firmly on the fence between contemporary and traditional realism. It would be nice if I could just settle into a box where people knew what to expect from me and it probably would make things easier for my husband, but what fun would that be? I love the rythm of paint on a canvas too much to give in to tight realism and when I simplify things I begin to miss the beautiful details I find in the world around me.”
Marcia’s father, Jay Schmidt, was an artist and her brothers Tim Schmidt and Brad Schmidt are both artists as is her husband, George Molnar.
