Navigating the line between abstraction and realism, Molly Cranch’s paintings are infused with light, air, and atmosphere. Inspired by nature, common subjects include complex botanical forms and delicate gestural renderings of birds and other creatures.
Painting from nature has been an enduring interest of Molly’s. What began as a study in depth, pattern and color, has since evolved into a form of meditation. Painting nature builds a connection to nature in the busy city landscape in which she lives.
