Piece description from the artist
In the part of downeast Maine where I live in the summer, June brings swathes of purple lupines and the pinks and whites of rosa rugosa, the wild roses that bloom by the sea here. This field was on Deer Isle behind the Pilgrim's Inn in Deer Isle Village.
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.
