“The Eau Claire Farmers Market” by Ruth Lundblad
watercolor and pen, 30” x 17"

Ruth Lundblad has enjoyed playing with watercolors as her main medium for more than 12 years. Her challenge is to capture the light and movement of life on paper or canvas by experimenting with different techniques and mediums.

“This piece was commissioned by a friend who loves the colors and activities in our market. I tried to capture the sights and temper of the market as well as the beautiful building structure. The original is also textured with mat medium to add more texture to the flowers. The picture is a composite of many photos taken by my husband and a bit of artist’s liberty on my part with the actual facts.” – The Artist
