If you’re on Boca watercolor artist Marilyn Liedman’s email list, lucky you. She shares uplifting images of waterfalls, exotic animals and street scenes from Paris instead of sick and tired news.

Liedman turned to fine art after a career in architectural art. Used to meeting art show deadlines since 2006, Liedman has a rare chance to slow down. She dubs her latest art “isolation paintings,” working online to perfect a new technique with art mentor Vladislav Yeliseyev. “Artists don’t retire, they evolve,” she said.

Liedman moved to Boca seven years ago from Key Biscayne. “I always had a studio, even as an architectural artist when I had to build scale models,” she said. “When I have a deadline for a commission, or I apply for a major or local show, I work constantly to meet that deadline. There’s no more shows, so I can find more time to paint.”

Just before the shutdown, Liedman’s “Lattice for Lunch” was in Palm Beach Watercolor Society’s Anniversary Open Exhibition in Coral Springs. Her “The Adventurer’s Code” hung in Women in the Visual Arts 20/20 Visions in Fort Lauderdale.

“Saturday at The Sundy House”

Now she’s preparing for the Florida Watercolor Society’s virtual 49th Annual Exhibition in September. Her “Nature’s Fury” won Excellence in Landscape in the society’s last show in Orlando. Liedman’s also active in Plein Art Palm Beach, artists who paint outdoors.

“A Bridge at River Bend”

“I love to continue learning from other artists and use in my own work,” she said.
