I wish to thank all who have visited my home studio and purchased paintings. If you have been referred by a gallery representative please let me know, so I can honor my sales commission contracts with them.
The joy of sharing my art makes the effort of making my art more complete.
There is much more art that is not on my website because it is in galleries, sold before it was photographed or just waiting to be photographed and uploaded. My studio work is available; please call to make an appointment. When visiting one of my representative galleries, please be aware that wall space these days is limited in galleries, and often there is inventory available upon request as work is often rotated. Thank you for visiting my work.
I am an abstract expressionist as well as representational artist. The use and manipulation of natural elements, color and texture drive my work. I began painting with watercolor in 1996, endeavoring to be a “purist” in transparent watercolors, but soon expanded into use of opaque watercolors, acrylic, soft pastels, polymer mediums, oil and other mixed media to result in layered texture, form and color. Major influences include teachers James Kirk, Skip Lawrence, as well as the modern and classic painters J. M. W. Turner, Diebenkorn, Wayne Thiebauld, Chuck Close, Matisse and many more. I hope to open a dialogue with the viewer, so that the viewer wants to touch the surface, and that my art will raise more questions than it answers.”
Marilyn Krug is a native Oregonian. She lives in West Salem with a backyard full of squirrels, chipmunks, and hundreds of birds. Her passion for drawing and painting has been with her from earliest memories. “My home is surrounded by hillsides graced by old White Oak and fir trees, and close to the ocean. I am inspired by nature and architectural form, which are reflected in representational as well as abstract works.”
Marilyn enjoys teaching acrylic, mixed media and watercolor. When not painting, Marilyn enjoys bird watching, travel, photography, and literature.
