Far from the Wolf | The Maine Project Part 1
Built in 1892 by John Godfrey Moore, is the setting for my latest project in Winter Harbor Maine.
Last fall marked the beginning of a commissioned project to capture the views surrounding the historic property known as "Far from the Wolf." To live and paint in this grand house from America's gilded age while I explored Winter Harbor and the Schoodic Peninsula was a thrilling adventure.
Did I mention that I would be alone in a 20 room house on the coast? On the edge of Winter?
I was unprepared.
I was unprepared for how powerful my affection would be for this intensely beautiful and yet unforgiving landscape. I came to Maine knowing how to paint. I thought this project would fall in line with other commissions I have done in other beautiful places. The reality was unexpected and brought to me a far deeper explanation of what people have been asking me for most of my artistic life. Have you been to Maine?
