Marcia Burtt

For over forty years, Marcia Burtt has specialized in painting light-filled landscapes outdoors. Describing her plein air practice, Burtt explains, “Standing in nature…is the high point of any outdoor painting experience. Looking itself becomes a kind of communion that isn’t about making a product but rather about trying to join with and describe the visible world.” Notably, Burtt prefers acrylics to oils, as their thinness and quick drying time allow her to continually assess and rework her canvas as she paints.
