"Unfurled" | Oil on Canvas | 24"x24"

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

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

Maine Artists Quotes

"My aim is to escape from the medium with which I work; to leave no residue of technical mannerisms to stand between my expression and the observer."

Maine-Magazine

Since 2008, Maine Arts Scene online magazine has been promoting Maine artists and arts organizations in new and enterprising ways. We quietly revolutionized the local magazine world by offering a truly democratic voice to Maine artists and arts organizations throughout the state. For a small fee, individual artists and arts organizations can submit their press releases to present their work and promote their events on our popular site and social networks. As we reached the 10,000 visits per month milestone in 2009, we decided to push the online magazine boundaries one step further by launching the first statewide juried multi-disciplinary virtual online showcase. We created a unique virtual experience that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate and art work displayed to scale. In 2012, Maine Art Scene is going one step further.  Maine artists and private collectors of Maine art will soon be able to create online stores and sell their work. Arts organizations including galleries, museums, and non-profits will also be able to set up online gifts shops,  box offices and donation pages.
