Bowdren Fine Art

6 boats, Rockport dock - Oil

 I am a painter and sculptor living in Maine. My source for artistic inspiration is Maine's coastal landscape. I wander and sketch looking to surprise myself with interesting compositions, especially where the water, land and sky meet. The quality of light in Maine is really wonderful, how it can bring emotional intensity to the subject, lighting up pilings of an old wharf in the afternoon sun or illuminating the curves of a well used fishing boat. I try to instill into my work the echo of how people live and work in and with their enviroment. 
In sculpture I work in carved wood, usually finished in gold or palladium leaf. These works are more abstract, I simplify and edit the idea of a subject, like a whale or eagle or even the sun setting on the water.
I hope you enjoy!
