Greater Portland Panorama is an installation of over one hundred twelve-inch landscape paintings of Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, and Falmouth, Maine, ?Landscapes by the Foot.? I noticed one day while preparing my work for a show that the similar horizon lines of my landscape paintings made a new landscape when placed side by side. This new landscape happened regardless of the different subject in each painting. I then imagined a long line of landscapes in a large space and how that line would draw the viewer in and out of each piece and back to the whole leading one as a journey. The individual works vary from beach to marsh to golf course to cityscape to mill building. My main interest in each painting is color and the relation of shapes. The subjects for my paintings come from having lived in Greater Portland all my life and knowing intimately the places of our daily lives. I bring my vision and experience of the place to the viewer and I hope these works make you reconsider what you see every day and help you see equal beauty in the scenic and the ordinary.
