PALM SPRINGS, Calif.
- Jan. 11, 2020
-- The very first competition NL Galbraith submitted any of her artwork to is Fusion Arts, based in Palm Springs, California. Fusion Arts awarded her the honor of being an exhibition finalist winner, with two
of her paintings. She submitted these paintings into Fusion Art's competition hoping to bring the Fullerton Arboretum to the forefront of people's minds, together with sustainability issues of our forests and food supplies. She stated, "I was so pleased to find out that out these paintings, the "Fullerton Arboretum" and "The Golden Clearing By the Water's Edge", were included as finalist winners." Both landscape paintings are now on exhibition and available to view through Fusion Art online for the month of January 2020, and of course on NL Galbraith's website a little longer. A copy will also be available to view soon in Oak Hall at the Fullerton Arboretum. To learn more about the Fullerton Arboretum or to purchase giclee prints of NL's exhibition finalist winning paintings, go to the website of NL Galbraith Fine Art at https://www.nlgalbraithfineart.com
. A portion of every sale of this painting, the "Fullerton Arboretum", will be donated to the Fullerton Arboretum to help support their ongoing care and maintenance of this rare, special, and needed facility located on the outer edge of the California State University, Fullerton campus.
It was professional photographer David's Ricks' gorgeous photograph that inspired NL Galbraith to want to paint it, together with the importance of this facility. It is with David Ricks' permission and that of the Fullerton Arboretum that this painting exists to enjoy at all. (Credit: David Ricks for his great photograph.)
The 2nd painting, "The Golden Clearing By The Water's Edge" was painted from a memory of a hike taken many years ago into the high Sierra's, when NL came upon this beautiful golden clearing at the edge of the timber line, next to a crystal clear lake from the snow melt off that was full of rainbow trout. Giclee prints of this painting in many sizes (up to 5 feet wide), and many other painting's giclees, are available to purchase from the website of NL Galbraith at https://www.nlgalbraithfineart.com.
