March 08, 2017 – Trish Murtha, Loveland, CO based watercolor artist, teacher and Endeavorista, has just released her first journal Perennial Dance. While the lined pages of Perennial Dance provide plenty of space for writing, planning, travel notes and / or sketching, Murtha uses her creativity to make Perennial Dance come to life on the page. From the original art work on the cover, to the selection of thought provoking quotes, to the interior drawings, which can be hand colored, Perennial Dance is sure to delight and inspire.
Murtha’s artwork is inspired by her “life so far”-roaming harbors and small towns, country roads adorned with autumn foliage and radiant wildflowers. “To everything there is a season” was the reality of a young girl who learned that the unexpected was expected and that impending change is a bridge in time to something new.
Perennial Dance is the first in a series of journals, planned to illuminate Murtha’s original watercolor works with emphasis on the flower garden.
Murtha currently splits her time between art-making and teaching near her Colorado family, then packs her paints for jaunts home to New England to be among grandkids and boats.
By embracing herself as a “migratory species” Murtha lives a life of adventure, endeavoring to learn and express life through her art. In doing so she was compelled to encourage others to embrace life and join her in becoming an Endeavoresta!
The publication of Perennial Dance and the launch of Endeavoresta! begin an exciting new journey for Murtha and her art. A journey that invites you to join in.
Liz Mrofka, publisher at What If? Publishing says, “We’re excited to expand our publishing program to include Murtha’s journal. Combining the popularity of journals and Loveland’s art community, we have created a new way for people to support of the arts.”
About the Artist: Trish Murtha grew up in New England, earned an English degree and worked in publishing and design before learning watercolor. Her 20 years as an artist and teacher has taken her all over the world.
