Red Barn Art Exhibitions: "Marin, Sweet Marin"

Painting: "Bolinas Lagoon Reflections" by Emmeline Craig

"Marin, Sweet Marin"
October 11, 2012, through January 11, 2013

Born in France, West Marin artist Emmeline Craig infuses her oil and watercolor paintings with blissfulness. Her intention is to soothe the mind, lift the spirit and feed the soul with primal exhilaration. Her landscapes incorporate peacefulness with whimsical humanity and place us in simple and beautiful landscapes that are unique to Marin. Her exhibit featured original works and Giclee prints on canvas and paper.
