Marin Dobson is an artist who has won awards and national recognition for her distinctive oil paintings of the natural landscape. Her paintings transcend the physical scenes depicted on canvas and evoke emotion through the bold use of color, texture, and composition. Her oil paintings have been juried into prestigious national shows in New York NY, San Francisco and Carmel CA, Scottsdale AZ, Santa Fe and Taos, NM. Some of these shows include the Oil Painters of America National and Regional Shows, the American Women Artists National Show, the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe National Show, the Allied Artists of America National Show and the Audubon Artists National Shows. Her work describes lyrical forms and patterns of light in a painterly style that reflect the influences of her Russian impressionist training and her study of classical painting technique. She paints primarily alla prima and en plein air. The experience of painting from life infuses her work with a luminous color quality.
