Piece description from the artist
Meigs Point is at the north end of Hammonnassett State Park in Madison, CT. The huge granite stones there were left when the continents separated thousands of years ago.
Eileen is a contemporary realist painter that enjoys working directly from life whether painting still lifes in the studio or land and seascapes outdoors. Her goal is to create a three dimensional world with a sense of poetry that her viewers can enter, enjoy and maybe even get lost in.

Salmagundi Award, Hudson Valley Art Association's 86th Annual Juried Exhibit 2019, Buck’s County Plein Aire Festival 2018 Honorable Mention
and, Wayne 12th Annual Plein Air Festival Golden Art Award. Her most recent award was Best Outdoor Still life for Plein Air Salon.
Eileen’s work has been published in several magazines. Plein Air Painting Magazine gave her a 5 page article in the June/July 2017 publication. Previous awards include being a finalist for Still Life for 5 years running in American Artist Magazine
