Fern Coppedge is a favorite at Nutmeg Designs.  A Pennsylvania Impressionist, she saw the world in many gradations of color, and she lived near our area in Bucks County, PA.

For Coppedge, nature was a rainbow—snow, skies, water, and earth were all made up of shimmering bits of colors. Purple, red, turquoise, orange, and brilliant yellow were just a few of the colors that she mixed together to create paintings called landscapes. Placing the complementary colors side by side made the paintings appear to come alive with energy and direction.
