“There is a Way” by Lee Munsell, Ruby Beach, Olympic Peninsula, WA
“Look deep into nature,
and then you will
understand everything better.”
Lee Munsell is a West Coast resident, and studied art at the Otis Art Institute. His work graces the walls of corporations, churches and private residences throughout the United States. His life is a balance of church, family, art, surfing…in that order.
Munsell is a Luminist, as he explores a range of naturalistic subject matter with a sensitive eye for varying degrees of luminosity. He takes on the more difficult subjects of water, its weight, and its under tow in the tidal current.
The art critic William Havlicek wrote: ” Munsell uses nuances of light to create transcendent evocations. At a time when excess is a great temptation for an artist, it is refreshing to find an individual like Munsell who embraces time-honored tradition then attempts the difficult.
He may approach a silent mountain terrain where clouds and light are as much the subjects of the work as are the peaks, rivers and strong pines. Munsell explores the profundity of water and light, presenting a shimmering work on rocks, or a glow of luminosity in back-lit waves. Taking effects of light is his way of expressing a belief in a supernatural origin for the natural universe.”

Sharing a “doing good works” story…
Lee Munsell’s daughter and her husband live in India part-time working for a humanitarian group called Embracing the World. Over the years they have built a beautiful relationship with us offering fine silk shawls. It is a pleasure to see the art work of her father’s art on silk shawls and we are delighted to offer them for the fall season!
