Lake Tahoe is a gorgeous destination with lush fir and pine trees against a breathtaking backdrop of the Sierra Nevada. It serves as the perfect location for the Marcus Ashley Gallery, where some of the world’s best collections are showcased. Here is where one can explore Michael Parkes art at length.
In Nectar, the artist paints a maiden and jester enjoying the company of hummingbirds. Her sweetness draws the little avian beauties closer. She finds comfort and joy in their presence. The maiden and jester appear to be close companions despite their stark differences.
Parkes includes a rough sketch of a hummingbird reaching for nectar from a lovely bloom at the bottom of the litho print. It’s as if the artist developed his maiden subject from an initial drawing of a flower. Notice how her stance resembles the pristine bloom.
Parkes invites us to view and appreciate the little details in Nectar before building up his final masterpiece, relying on varying shades of gray, gold, crimson, and ivory to create a fascinating narrative.
Collectors can place Nectar in any room to instantly elevate its grand interiors.
