"Purple Mountains Majesty", 8x10, oil on wrapped canvas- by Maryanne Jacobsen


"Purple Mountains Majesty", 8x10, oil on wrapped canvas

I've been working on mountains and brushstrokes a lot lately, and I've had a ball trying to refine my knowledge of both! Sometimes, I get too involved in trying to do the "correct thing", academically speaking. But I always find that when I just experiment, using common sense, I end up accumulating little pieces of knowledge that carry over into my next endeavor.

I definitely enjoyed painting this piece, and I thank God that He has given me an artistic outlet for my passions and creativity. Here is a photo of "Purple Mountain Majesty" after I framed and varnished it for the new collector. I have a feeling he is going to be very happy when he sees it in person!

Please contact me at if you wish to commission a painting for a loved one or for yourself!
