HAPPINESS

COME VISIT Merrill's studio in the SPRING CITY MILL STUDIOS building, a newly renovated knitting mill factory built in 1886, with high ceilings and tons of northern light.  She invites you to stop by STUDIO #202 on the second floor for THIRD SATURDAY OPEN STUDIOS to see her new work, chat and likely laugh a lot.  You are welcome to mill about (pun intended) and visit with the 19 talented artists, plus writers, in the historic building every third Saturday of the month.  The address:  20 E. Bridge Street, Studio #202, Spring City, PA  19475, or click HERE for directions.

ARTIST STATEMENT


Merrill Weber is a native Floridian who has called the beautiful Southeastern Pennsylvania countryside home for the past 25 years. Forever an artist at heart, Merrill has joyfully embraced the opportunity to paint daily in recent years after dedicating nearly three decades to raising her son with classic autism. Seeing the world through his eyes has challenged Merrill to communicate feelings of joy and delight without words, and inspires her to create floral imagery bursting with sensations of buoyancy, color, movement and harmony. 

Merrill's paintings represent the place where her love of flowers and her passion for painting intersect. She is determined to bring more beauty and happiness into the daily lives of others through her art. Inspired by nature, her engaging work has been described as imaginative, playful, and filled with energy and hope. In creating her multi-media pieces from life, Merrill adds many layers of flowers in acrylic over brightly-toned canvases. Floral detail is then added in graphite and pastel. Multiple coats of archival varnish complete the process. Merrill's goal in painting is to create a conversation with the viewer via her canvas, allowing her to preserve and share in the joy of the moment.
