air and studio landscape
painter Charlene Marsh
maintains a full time studio in Brown County, Indiana,
in the heart of the
largest deciduous forest in the country. The paintings capture the
healing, grounding, natural, vibrational frequency of the forest and bring
that energy of peace, tranquility, and serenity into our living spaces.
the early Brown County painters, the artist hikes 2-4 miles a day into the
forest backpacking her supplies to paint these landscapes "en plein air" (French term meaning "to paint in the open
air") in all four
seasons. Charlene paints wet into wet using palette knives to capture the
wild, raw, energy of the pristine forest and creek throughout the year.
Studio paintings are inspired by the plein air work.
Charlene's paintings are in
collections throughout the United States and Europe. She sells her paintings at
shows across the country.
Several galleries exhibit and sell her
paintings. Paintings can be purchased through this website.
