Water scenes: rivers, bays, boats of all kinds


A broad expanse of sky over a harbor filled with small boats. What could provide a better focal point when decorating your office? Realistic water scenes lend calm to a hectic or stressful working environment. Whether you choose a large oil painting for your reception area, or a small graphite pencil drawing, elegantly framed, close to your desk, a work of art can improve your productivity as well as your mood at work. It isn’t widely discussed, but art is also a valuable entry point when your visitors are uncomfortable or under stress. Carol Rowan paints gorgeous scenes of harbors, sailboats, and lobster boats on the water in Maine, England, and Australia, as well as intimate studies of casual gatherings of dinghies and other small craft.

A small number of original oil paintings and pencil drawings are available to view in her Washington, DC, studio by appointment. Art lovers are also invited to commission their own unique work of a favorite or ideal marine scene.
