October's "Sunset on the Marsh," painted by Peter Liman, is a scene from Cape Porpoise, Maine. As an admirer of sunsets of all seasons, Peter came upon this one unexpectedly, so he sketched it and itemized its predominant colors in Maine, then rendered a painting back in his Big Hollow studio in upstate New York.
The Maine sunset was on display at September 25's Arts Fest event but did not sell. "The crowd seemed to prefer my less expensive gyclee prints," he said, "but I was pleased that so many people had fine compliments about my oil paintings."
Peter's articulated brush strokes and bold color capture his love of American scenery. "I love unique skies and sunsets. Thankfully, there are sunsets in all four seasons to capture my imagination."
