Anne Martin McCool traces her painting roots to the landscape, a theme prevalent
throughout most of her work. Her constant inspiration has been the Northwest,
with its abundant water, its gray skies, its tall reeds portray the landscape
through her use of recognizable symbols and themes. The earth, the seasons and
our relationship to them, all play an important role in her subject matter. Her
expressive works have both mystery and spontaneity, and are often compelling
narratives that invite the viewer to become part of the visual process.
