Beginning June 15 through July 19 Gold/Smith Gallery, 8 McKown St. in Boothbay Harbor, will be featuring the plein air paintings of Thomaston artist Susan Headley Van Campen.
Her medium is watercolor, her paper is Arches 300 lb. cold pressed and her subjects are the flowers spread out on the rolling acres of farmland just outside her front door in Thomaston, Maine.
Susan says “ Looking, drawing and painting all my life has been my Passion. In my late teens I began gardening and have made. Many mistakes and learned a lot of lessons. I like growing and tending. What I love to paint, both flowers and vegetables. Walking out to the gardens to choose what strikes me at. The moment is my favorite part.”
Gold/Smith Gallery will have a reception for the artist Saturday, June 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. They hope you can come and meet with Susan and share her joy of nature.
