Marilyn Bast Dunlap With a passion for art and history, Marilyn started painting at a very early age. Growing up in a small town, she often dreamed of far away places. This longing to escape is reflected in her art. As a graduate of University of Florida with a major in Exercise Science and a minor in Art, she would teach in the Winter and travel to Europe in the Summer. Over the years she has painted in oils, water colors and acrylics. She now paints exclusively in acrylics on masonite, as this medium allows her to pay meticulous attention to detail. As a Romantic Realist, Marilyn strives to find a delicate balance between magically contrived images and realistic details. Her brightly colored scenes stimulate the senses, yet leave the viewer with a sense of tranquility.
Marilyn Bast Dunlap As an incurable romantic, she translates ordinary street scenes and country sides into magical images. Like the song of the Sirens, she invites us to be seduced by her cafes, bistros, narrow alley ways and color soaked landscapes. In the artist words, “ When I am painting, I feel as if I am there. I can smell the Fromagerie, taste the Chocolat, and long for a good seat at the Bistro De Bastille. Painting is the next best thing to being there! I have accomplished my purpose, if I can bring to one’s senses a longing to be there.” Follow Marilyn and her little black cat, found in her paintings, as they wander through the villages and country sides of Europe.
They had the ribbon cutting ceremony for the unveiling of my mural, in Middletown, Deleware. It is on the side of a building, on the town square. The building houses the "Fromage a Cheese Boutique", (a gourmet cheese shop), owned by Chris Pride. There were thousands of people in town for the Peach Festival, so it went well!!!! Thank you Chris for choosing my artwork for this project!! There is a bronze plaque, with my name and website, on the mural.
"Creperie de la Poste" was chosen to be used on a 10' x 5 ' wall in an office building on Long Island, NY. The original painting is a 9" x 12 " acrylic on masonite. Thank you FAA for the exposure. This is the second time one of my paintings has been chosen for a mural, from my work on FAA.
Thank You FAA,
This Fromagerie de Paris, along with more of my French street scenes, will be combined to create a large mural on the side of a building in Delaware. The owner of the cheese shop, in Middletown, Delaware, originally saw my artwork on "fine art america".
