Eleanor Tyndall Meier paints still life tableaux in watercolor within the Realist tradition. On a surface saturated with color she endeavors to establish a world of memory and tradition using objects that have passed from generation to generation; objects that possess the potential for significance because of past associations; objects that may be grand or humble, glistening or tarnished, clear or opaque. She includes things associated with life; plants, flowers, fruit, eggs, all solid forms that reflect shifting webs of shadows. Patterned fabrics animate the paintings.

 

Eleanor Meier is a retired high school art teacher and supervisor. She is a past president of the CLWAC, currently Membership Chair. She is an elected member of NAWA, the Salmagundi Club, and a life member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society. She exhibits at the Long Island Museum, Gallery North, The National Arts Club, and the Salmagundi Club among other venues.
