The Mexico Years
1987 to 2012
Mexico is my second home. I arrived here in 1986 for a winter break
from the cold winds and snows of Maine. My art in Mexico is distinctly
different. I attribute this to the light, 7,000 feet with natural
light to paint with my work is bright and intense colors are used.
While in Maine the colors are more muted. I owe much to Mexico,
and my ten-year retrospective at the Diego Rivera Museum, Gods, Land, & People of México testify to the debt I owe the people and to the light.

The Maine Years
1951 to Present
Of course, every person has his or her special way of experiencing
Maine. And, it is always a delight to hear people talk about ‘their
Maine’. There is no uniform agreement, and I expect my vision
of Maine is only one more probe into the nature of Maine. Yet, in
a very real way, I feel I have enabled Maine to have a distinction
of its own, by addressing the essential elements of its character,
rather than displaying its outer skin.
