The gull perched on the bollard in David Witbeck’s Harbor Gulls is watching you. They are fight- ing over chum in Free Lunch. And one is calling out to the sunrise in Morning Gulls. When they are not the subject, Witbeck uses birds in his paintings as a call to action, a source of drama, and sometimes a point of humor.
David’s work is very unique and easy to distinguish. The charm and love of the coast comes through. For those us born and raised New England coast, we have known Ducan, the lobsterman, our whole life.
Today’s calendar of events is just as crazy and just as wonderful as yesterdays. And, of course, Maine Art Painting and Sculpture will be celebrating the best of it.
