The Intimate Forest

The Nature Art, Floral Art, Forest Art of Harlan

A Celebration of the Beauty of Nature in Oil Paintings by Harlan

The Intimate Forest welcomes you! Here you are invited to enjoy the original oil paintings and prints by award winning Michigan artist Harlan. Harlan's paintings feature the beauty to be found in gardens and forests. Harlan's style is a combination of both realism and impressionism, a style she refers to as "Sharp Focus Impressionism". Her paintings bring the viewers' attention to beauties that are often overlooked in Nature, small, "intimate" scenes. The close view of the paintings' subjects inspired the name for this website: Intimate Forest. At first glance Harlan's work might appear to be Photo-realism but a closer look shows that her paintings are more personal. Harlan's paintings are painted with integrity following the time honored methods that produce lasting works of art.

We hope you will enjoy the Nature Art, Floral Art and Forest Art of Harlan as displayed here in the intimateforest. Share the celebration of the beauty of Nature.

Original Paintings and prints are for sale.
