Monique Sakellarios is internationally recognized and has received numerous honors and awards for her work as an impressionist artist. Yet, when asked about her piece, “Summer in Maine,” her biggest hope was to have it “adopted”. “I want it to go to a loving family who will cherish it as much as I do. I hope it will bring happiness to whoever sees it.”
Each painting holds a piece of the artist. For Monique, it’s a memory. “This painting reminds me of happy times spent in Maine, and I want to share those with the viewer.” The contrast of the purples and pinks of the wildflowers and the multitude of greens in the marsh bring a part of Maine summer to those who have not had the chance to wander in for a closer look. “I see lazy summer days that seem to go on forever,” says Sakellarios.
