On Saturday, August 1st, Harvest Gold Featured artist Sandy Bell will be doing a plein air painting event. Sandra is a representational painter whose studio is in Center Lovell, Maine. Working in oils primarily, she is inspired by whatever holds her attention. Her works include a broad spectrum of North Country subjects….often little known or off the beaten track.
She begins with her own photography and creates paintings of regional landscapes, coastal subjects, interiors and beautiful lake scenes in a variety of painting styles with a feeling of spontaneity.
She also arranges unique tableaux that when painted become a whimsical or allegorical still life.
Sandra attended college and then art school for a period of time, all the while paying close attention to 20th century America. She involved herself in historic preservation (architectural), collected and traded in antiques (dump picking too), restored old houses, provided interior design and decorating services, hiked in the mountains, sold suburban residential and country real estate, designed gardens and watched them grow, ran a private non-transitional facility for young adult patients, all the while forming a world view.
The plein air will be from 10 am to 2 pm. Dont forget to swing by!
