Meet the Artist
Maud Durland, an award-winning Oregon watercolor artist, captures her motifs in a figurative and contemporary style. She is known for her calming renderings of landscapes and she also likes to paint a variety of other subjects. Light and shadows are essential components in her paintings.
"I'm looking for motifs that are beautiful and make you dream away. I believe we need that to find balance in our busy lives. I am especially fascinated by landscapes. My favorite sceneries I have found in California. I love those rolling hills and the vineyards. When the light is right the shadows bring out the shapes and accentuate the beauty."
Maud Durland's watercolors are found in private, public and corporate collections in United States as well as in Europe. One of Europe's leading fine art publishers, EGIM in Italy, has acquired licensing rights to several of her paintings. Hewlett-Packard has published some of her works at their greeting card website. Maud Durland's art has been shown and sold at juried National and Northwest exhibits.
