According to Nicolai Larsen, 'in my watercolor landscapes, the flow of water, the play of light, atmosphere and the formation of geological processes are primary influences.  The paper I use is 300 lb. 'Arches' made in France.  The colors I use are often made from mineral pigments, crushed stones, then mixed with water and applied with brushes."

For your enjoyment will be a variety of landscapes featuring organic and geological subjects.

The exhibition will run July 8th - August 12th.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12noon-5pm.
