Rea Nagel

Natural beauty inspires me to create vibrant impressionist style paintings. Color and texture are the effect that I strive for, using watercolors and mixed media. Emotions are the element that guides me. 

When I see something that excites me to start to plan a painting. I like to let the paint run and form the picture in my mind combining the paint with the forms and shapes on the paper. 

I carry a sketch book and am always making quick sketches of everything natural around me. I use watercolors, acrylics, collage and other mixed media, whatever seems to transfer my visions and get the emotions to the paper and to the eye of the beholder. 

As an award winning artist my paintings are in many collections in this country.
