Inspire Me! By Shannon E.A. McNamara

Templeton Vineyard 12 x 24 oil

Although I started at a tender age drawing pencil and crayon pictures on the blank pages of my mother’s Bible, I expanded to many avenues of expression over the years, such as oil and watercolors. I am especially fond of plein air painting.  Being out there in the open air surrounded by nature is the most exciting time for me—focusing on the various elements and the challenges of bringing them to the canvas.

My body of work reflects time spent in many beautiful locations here on the Central California Coast, as well as many other places in the United States and Europe.
