"Mark Granlund's painting was a surprise Christmas gift years ago from my spouse. We both see it as a symbol of tranquility. The painting has always been a prominent centerpiece in our home situated above our mantel. Nearly every house guest we've ever had inquires about it. What I love about Mark's painting is his ability to bring you into an intimate conversation about his subject. We feel connected to his meditative observation from a viewpoint on higher ground, one that seems simultaneously metaphoric and emotional."
- Therese B., Seattle, WA
"Mark is able to make art from the edge of his sink with as much heart and thought as any contemporary artist does with sweeping landscapes of farm fields. And a subtle acknowledgment that our own relationship to food is a bonus."

Description from Merchant:
For Paintings: Many of the still lifes of food are painted on cradled wood panels. The landscapes and all other paintings are painted on stretcheded 10 duck canvas. I make my own stretchers and wood panels in a wood shop attached to my studio. The wood substrate is made of pine or poplar and is cross-grained to prevent warping. The canvas and panels each receive three layers of gesso before being painted. After completion, each painting receives a protective varnish. The canvases, generally, have the images wrapped around the sides. I make my own canvases and panels to assure that, if framed and displayed properly, my paintings will last for generations.
