“This painting represents what I love most about Ogunquit, which is also where I live,” shares artist Claire Bigbee. “It truly is a heavenly place.”
Bigbee walks along the picturesque Marginal Way all year round in all types of weather.
“This painting represents the natural beauty and feeling of peace I have when I stroll by the marshes and shoreline,” explains Bigbee. “There is a connection to nature and a sense of freedom.”
For Bigbee, Maine is a healthy place with a high quality of life in times of stress like these days with the Covid 19.
“Everything slows down, and you are in the right place at a perfect moment,” she says. “It is a goal to capture that moment and presence of place. Between the dramatic vast palette of colors in the skies, the sea salt air, and the waves’ crashing sounds against the rocky coast, I am inspired by the serene and natural beauty. I infuse each painting with that feeling of awe and wonder. Maine is the way life should be.”
