About The Artist:

Wayne Morrell was born in Clementon, New Jersey in 1923. He attended the Philadelphia School of Industrial Arts and became a commercial artist. He did not begin painting until 1953 and left his commercial design career in 1961 to paint full time.

Morrell lived and worked in Rockport, Massachusetts, a town that was once a bustling art colony in the 1920s and 1930s. Morrell became known for his impressionistic paintings of his New England surroundings. Impressionist artists painted en plein air, or outdoors, to capture the natural light and shadows exactly how they perceived it. They painted with broad, gestural brushstrokes. Morrell was active within the New England art community and was a member of many artists associations. These associations included the Allied Artists of America, Grand Central Art Galleries, American Artists Professional League, the Salmagundi Club, Hudson Valley Artists, Springfield Academic Artists, Southern Vermont Art Association, and the Rockport Art Association.

Morrell's Salt Marsh Country is perhaps a view of New England. Morrell's use of natural light illuminates the rich colors of the boat and the surrounding marshland. Morrell was known to use vibrant colors, especially greens, to bring his New England scenes to life.
