Otter Point Left 12 x 12 oil on linen

I’m getting set to deliver work to the Maine farmland Trust Gallery, Belfast, Maine, for a show of artists that were in residence at the Fiore Art Center in Jefferson, Maine this past summer. There will be  a closing reception in March.

Coast Scene, Mount Desert Frederic Edwin Church – 1863

Church

A Facebook friend posted the Church painting above, right, Coast Scene, Mount Desert – 1863 and I immediately dug into my archives and found an image of mine from a few years back from about the same vantage point. Naturally the tide, weather and stature of the artist differ but the connection is somewhat compelling.
