“At first my favorite was Lone Pine, but after living with the paintings for some months now, I am beginning to lean towards Fog and Flaura,” says Williams. With her obvious love of what she creates, choosing one as a favorite took months. The lure of “Fog and Flaura” is understandable. “It is so solitary, yet serene, quiet but with a strong statement. I like that.”
A painter at heart, Abbie is seduced by anything that sparks her imagination. “It demands I paint it!” she says of the fog found in a series she started over a year ago. Ensnared is the word she uses to describe the mist of fog. It has captured her. The multitude of Maine wildflowers blended with the shadow of the pines in the distance brings the viewer home. It’s as if you have been here before. You can actually feel the comfort Abbie has created.
For forty years Abbie has been putting paint to canvas. She has a beautiful collection of work at the gallery, as well as two other stunning pieces in the Choice Art Show, which were unveiled on June 13th at the opening. We hope you find time to come see them in person. If not, please visit Abbie’s work at www.maine-art.com.
