Mary Fran Anderson Watercolors


Inspired by light and color, Mary Fran Anderson pursues places, both real and imaginary as the basis for her paintings. Her most successful art emerges from designing a painting that minimizes the use of local color and instead uses color and light to emphasize the feeling of the painting. 


Mary Fran Anderson graduated with a master's degree from Portland State University. Further study has included watercolor classes and workshops in Chicago and the Northwest. 


Shows have included the Oregon Society of Artists Rose Festival Shows, the Watercolor Society of Oregon spring and fall shows, and the Women of Watercolor (WOW) spring and fall shows. 


Mary Fran Anderson also has a site on displaying watercolor prints and giclees using the title of Watersplashart.
