As for the piece…art is about a connection, an immediate, this is it. I had that immediate wow factor.
Some of us chose our favorite works for very personal connections, others for color palette or composition, and still others for technique and skill.
My style tends to be figurative with impressionistic touches, usually showing close up compositions with just enough detail to reveal the subject. I have concentrated on Maine–themed images and fresh fruits and vegetables because I like the idea of the life they represent.
We have approximately 60 juried artist members representing various visual arts mediums, including painting, photography, printmaking, sculpting, textile art, and mixed media.
After retiring from a career in higher education, I decided to indulge my interest in photography. I found my professional skills in theater..directing, set design, and light design, translated well over the visual art of photography. My focus has been primarily on landscape, cityscape, and seascape, but I have also developed an unexpected fondness for wildlife photography.
Together through tears, laughter, wine, and paint, these three talented local artists have helped heal and keep each other firmly rooted. We are so thrilled they are willing to share paintings they created from their journey.
