Nevada City Winery’s October Art Show – Flora and Fauna by Wendy Spratt
Wendy Spratt’s paintings give us a much-needed reprieve, a chance to take a deep breath and allow
ourselves a ‘looking glass’ perspective of nature. Both the grace and dazzle of nature come through
these works. Whether a plant, a bird, or a bug, her remarkable colors will sing for you.

A Statement by Wendy Spratt:
Wendy talks about her inspiration for “Flora and Fauna”, at the Nevada City Winery Gallery.
“ …I was curious to try and capture the simplicity and beauty of these plants I enjoyed along the
Mendocino coast last summer……the white yarrow against the rich cobalt sea, the many plump, juicy
colors of the blackberries and the dry, thorny thistle against a field of heat…….it’s harder than I thought! Might take a lifetime of painting to get those qualities and feelings I’m looking for down on canvas.
The bugs just intrigue me, all their amazing colors and shapes, perfect and fun for a small canvas, with a high gloss finish…which makes them pop!”
