“Anyone might admire Schoodic Point, but they have not really seen it until they’ve viewed Diana Roper McDowell’s ‘Sunrise Over Schoodic and Catnip Island – Lamoine’ a brilliant and meticulous watercolor wash of yellows and creams contrasted against impregnable black woods and distant purple mountains”
-Bar Harbor Times
To me, painting is the ability to take liberties with reality to express the feeling of a moment in time. Lines and shapes of color draw your attention into a painting. Once there, you realize there are no definitions, and your internal dialogue starts to shut down. You’ve slipped out of your world and to mine. Enjoy the ride.
