Leslie Anderson - Sedgwick, ME
"June Twilight Deer Isle"
Oil on Canvas
Artist Statement: "For me, painting is an analogy for life: a balance of risk and control, knowing when to go with the flow, knowing when to stop. I started painting several years ago as an antidote to my crazy job in high tech, never dreaming it would change my life." --Leslie Anderson

Lindsay Hopkins-Weld - Northeast Harbor, ME & Bernardsville, NJ
Oil on Canvas
Artist Statement: "I try to capture and portray my initial inspiration. Painting what I see, rather than what I know, creates a pleasing balance between realism and abstraction. Painting the places that I love feeds my spirit and reafirms my deep appreciation of nature. My aim is for serenity, simplicity and clarity through the use of color and light." --Lindsay Hopkins-Weld

Hannah Ineson - Damariscotta, ME & Everglades City, FL
Artist Statement: "Most of my work, painting and teaching, has been in watercolor, although I have also enjoyed both pastel and etching. Recently I also have been working in oil on canvas and linen. The subject matter that dominates my paintings reflects the coastal Maine area where I live and work most of the year, due to my interest in the working waterfront and the timeless wilderness areas here.
More importantly, the process of forging the image on paper or canvas is what compels me – the composition, the spontaneous or intentional merging of pigment into value, color, and texture. The expression of the image is in itself surprising and exciting; the creative process has a life of its own. The resulting images reflect the inner and outer journeys that any artist must undertake in 'making art'." --Hannah Ineson
