Our Featured Artist this month is Maureen Vezina.
Maureen is a contemporary realist devoted to painting outside. Here on the South Shore of Massachusetts, the diverse landscape provides the perfect subject for outdoor painters like Maureen. With all kinds of landscapes within a small radius - ocean, marshland, ponds, rivers, and woodlands - there is no shortage of new vistas to capture. Maureen enjoys painting in the city as well, thus the many Boston scenes.
In Maureen's blog, she shares aspects of each and every painting while "in-progress." She may write about the development of the painting, a memory that triggered the painting or perhaps a technique that was used. Her audience is truly global with readers from well over one hundred countries. www.maureen-vezina.blogspot.com or visit her website to see more of Maureen's work https://vezinart.com
