Special Places by Regina Murphy

The Artwork

Regina Murphy has explored many different media and styles but works primarily on painting, either on canvas or paper, oil, or acrylic. In Special Places, she has applied oil on canvas. Murphy labels her work as a blend of abstraction and realism. Nature has always been her primary subject. She is best known for her vivid landscapes, but many other subjects catch her interest from time to time.
