Piece description from the artist
I love the old houses that line the road in my summer home of Sedgwick, Maine. This one feels almost as if it were carved from the granite ledge that surrounds it, a perfect setting for the poppies, irises, and lupines that grow in early summer.
Leslie Anderson lives and paints in Maine. In the summer, she and her husband live downeast on a flower farm in Sedgwick, where she paints the landscape of the Blue Hill Peninsula and Deer Isle in oils and watercolors. In the winter, she works in her Portland studio, depicting half-remembered images from her days of summer painting and exploring the internal landscape of still life. Whether out-of-doors or in her studio, her artistic concerns are the same: juxtaposing light against dark, invoking pattern and repetition, and layering sumptuous, harmonious color. Her work in included in corporate and private collections around the world.
