"Twin Peaks" is a large format vertical painting by American artist, Mary Garrish. This original oil on stainless steel panel measures 48 x 36 inches. It is framed in an elegant gold leaf frame that measures 49 x 35 x 2 inches. The smooth surface gives this painting a subtle glow that is unique. The warm greens in the marsh grasses and far away islands create a depth of field that takes you on a trip to peaceful place below the clouds. The sky is rich with building clouds that show the warmth of the sun in gentle golden tones set against soft grays. The shore birds grace the scene as they hunt for dinner.

Mary was born in coastal Florida and studies the landscape there and around the world with numerous plein plein air painting adventures each year. Her studio work has a truth and honesty about it because of the time she spends in the natural environment. She became a painter after leaving the world of medicine where she served as a surgeon. Mary said, she had an intense pull toward art that was stronger than her pull to medicine. She has devoted intense study in both her studio work and in regular workshop participation with many of the great landscape artists of this era. Mary serves as Artist Mentor for the acclaimed Plein Air Painters of The Southeast group. Her originals hang in galleries and private collections around the US. Mary has been selected to participate in numerous national juried shows, and has had several one-woman shows at top galleries and museums.
