Como Cottage


Lose yourself in this “Como Cottage” by Marilyn Simandle. This magical village on Lake Como in Northern Italy is called Bellagio. This little magical village is filled with ambiance of another era. This cottage is filled with music and wine to celebrate the view.

Marilyn Simandle is an internationally known oil and water color painter. At the age of six, Marilyn knew she was destined to be a professional artist. After decades of discipline and dedicated practice Marilyn is credentialed as a Master with OPAM, NWS, and AWS (Oil Painters of America, National Water Color Society, and American Water Color Society). She has authored two books, “Capturing Light In Watercolor” and “Contagious Enthusiasm” which reflect her mantra “it takes a lot of practice to become a professional!”

Marilyn often says “you become what you behold”. This is ever so evident in her paintings. You receive peace, joy, rest and comfort through her work. A student of Marilyn’s successful workshops was once heard to say to Marilyn, “you have given me a new insight to painting and have instilled in me courage and inspiration to keep painting.”
