“These Nederzee Daydream paintings are like a “ meditation”. They are where I meld the old Dutch Seascape traditions with modern painting and modern color concepts,” explains LeCours. “This series of paintings evolve organically and intuitively.”
We are celebrating the fall colors, the cool air and the addition of two new artists to the gallery. Both are excited to join our family, and we want to give them a proper Kennebunk Welcome. There is nothing like hot apple cider and fall bites to make a Maine gathering complete. We are also thrilled to have live music from local guitarist Beau Dalleo. So, as you are out wandering and enjoying the sunshine this weekend, we hope you take some time to come say hello and visit.
LeCours, who works mostly in oils, takes inspiration from the natural beauty of his native New England. “The first time I painted outside, en plein air, in Portsmouth Harbor, I realized that nothing can replace the excitement and energy of reacting to the elements and painting directly,” he says. “Feeling the sights, sounds and smells and reacting to them with ‘mark making’ was a true epiphany.”
