Marilyn Blinkhorn Fine Arts
My paintings are a combination of reality, invention, and imagination. The work is colorful with rich surface pattern and line work. I work mostly with watercolor on paper and have developed my own method to produce a unique look. I have painted regularly, since age 10, and I am influenced by the Moderns and the Fauves.
My art is informed by everything I experience. I find visual and psychological stimuli around me every day, wherever I go, whatever I do. I need to tell you about these things through my art. I am interested in continuing to interpret and share the things that make my life significant and happy and to bring some of this into your lives.

What artist do you admire most?
Favorite painter is Milton Avery. I like that his distinctive style combined abstract and representational painting together with beautiful color, peculiar shapes and inventive surface textures. All of this, the result of acute observation (and apparent love) of his personal living environments.
What was your favorite scene to paint?
Quiet Water, as the inspiration for this painting came from the rivers of tidal water that punctuate the sand flats at Popham Beach...a mystical and beautiful place in Maine.
What would you like to paint/capture that you haven't yet?
I have painted just about every genre, but might like to revisit situational figure painting.
Your favorite drink?
What would be your last meal?
Last meal would start out with blueberry pancakes with butter and maple syrup, with a side of crispy bacon and coffee, followed by Front Room's short ribs with horseradish mashed potato, and roasted red cabbage! Mmmmm.
