This concept "On the Shore" represents a collaborative effort between Margareta Greeley and her late husband, Nelson. These paintings are based on his photographs of Sevade Pond in Windsor, Maine and the sunsets and seascapes of Aruba. She believes "As with any great work of art, the magic of the art is within the artist's love of the his subject and how he interprets it through his work."
Margareta holds true to the thought that many great artists receive inspiration from bodies of water. She uses the examples of Monet's water lily ponds, William Turners's ocean scapes and John Constable's river scenes. Each of these artists' interpretations of the bodies of water is unique. The technical thesis of the artwork in this exhibition is based on both renaissance and frontal perspectives. The compositions are dense and crowded with both vertical and horizontal axes illusion. There is a build up of rough textures and strong shades of browns, black, grays and greens.
