Merle Prewitt


a perfect palette…

My love of nature is reflected in my artwork, for nature creates a perfect palette of colors, contrasts, and subjects. This, though, is especially true in my “close-up” treatment of flowers, birds, animals, and parts of nature. Even more of interest to me is the miniature rendition of any area which nature provides.
