Rainy Brooks - Searsport, ME
Oil on Canvas
Artist Statement: "Painting with oils has given another dimension to my life...one where feelings of calmness and solitude emanate from a newly discovered peace, providing me insight into my inner self...one which was previously lost but now rediscovered through the creative process. It is this dimension which is at the core of my artwork. While my work is colorful and painterly, mental preparation is key in my process. Although I've always loved a good brush, I have discovered that the feeling of applying paint with a pallet knife gives me great pleasure and produces the effect of texture which I find very appealing. My hope is that the colors & textures that I put on canvas will move others to a place of peaceful joy." --Rainy Brooks
Jim Nickelson – Camden, ME
Fine Art Photographer
Archival Pigment Print
Artist Statement: "My interest in the beauty and complexity of the natural world drives my work. I seek out the edges in nature - between land and sea, sea and sky, day and night, and between one season and the next. An essential component of my creation of photographs is the interpretation of these edges into a square format image." --Jim Nickelson
