“The broad palette of color and layer upon layer of brush strokes make this show a breath of fresh air in itself,” says John Spain, owner of Maine Art Hill in Kennebunk. “All three artists have captured summer and Maine in paint. Three rooms, three artists. Each artist has a distinct and separate space at the gallery where they are featuring their new works, yet all three culminate into true coastal magic.”
“These neon-bright moorings provide such a cool contrast to the foggy coastal air and seas. I love how they glow,” explains Granter. “They are as close to putting down roots as a lot of ocean-going people get. The mooring is home, a safe harbor, a lovely idea during tumultuous times.”
Suddenly, we feel like we are right there, looking out to the beach that is further away. Similarly, with some of the sailing scenes, the viewer has to look past the large section of sail in the foreground to see the boats beyond.
“Now, the real challenge is to just keep challenging myself. I paint things that don’t bore me. That’s why I have so many different subject matters,” laughs Park. “I would hate for someone to say ‘Trip paints X, Y or Z.’ I don’t want to be pinned down with one definable thing or another.” This is evident by browsing through Park’s work for his 2020 show.
