An example of fine art by Ashley Mortenson

I started painting on our backyard fence in 2016 for fun and as a stress release from my job as a physician. I have a MFA that I haven't used in many years, and my husband had been bugging me to do creative things since medical school. I picked up my old Rembrandt pastels left over from the 80’s to use on the fence, because there weren’t enough colors in the sidewalk chalk box! This doodling on the fence has evolved into a part time career as an artist.
Most of my works are pastel paintings on reclaimed fence wood, which gives the painting a rustic feel. I particularly love animal portraits and rusty trucks. I've also started to do more traditional paintings on paper, which has allowed me to explore different genres.
