Piece description from the artist
One June night when I was out on Great Spruce Head Island in Maine's Penobscot Bay the sky turned rose and pewter. I used disposable foam brushes to get the paint on as quickly as I could!
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.
