For Ellen, there is a need for art to “celebrate living and our connection to the earth, sustain our spirit, honor nature, and speak of its mystery and sacredness.” Ellen lives year round on Mt. Desert Island in Maine. There she paints the places that reflect the spirit of the woods, mountains, and shores of her island home. She has exhibited with the National Watercolor Society, is a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society, and her card titled “Apple Trees in Snow” was nominated for a Louis Award in 2001.

A farm near Joan raises a herd of Belted Galloway livestock; creatures of great gentleness and majesty. The artist says, “I was struck by the stark contrast of these black and white animals against the vibrant and variegated colors of an early fall afternoon. I prefer to work on site, hoping to capture in oil the atmosphere of the scene that has caught my eye.” Joan exhibits with Allen Sheppard Gallery in New York, and her work can be viewed on www.artbackroom.com

I’m sure that anyone growing up in New England has his or her own recollections of snowstorms big enough to cancel school (please, God). Looking back now, I wonder if fate often stepped in, you know, having a heavy snowfall on the eve of that big arithmetic test you didn’t study for, and if you only had an extra day to really study. Marieluise exhibits regularly at Frank J. Miele, NYC, Tree’s Place, Gallery on the Green, Woodstock, VT and Bayview Galleries in Camden and Brunswick.
