Louise Bourne: Change of Season

Geraniums, oil on canvas, 40 x 30″

Louise Bourne lives on the Maine Coast’s Blue Hill Peninsula. She is passionate about the scenery around her and fascinated by the diamonds of light that sparkle off the surface of the waters of Penobscot Bay. She is interested in how color shifts in seasonal light conditions, and uses color and light to move through and give structure to a painting.

Bourne makes the iconic Maine landscape a very personal one, often by including family figures at play and at leisure. These quiet domestic scenes invite, suggesting that as a viewer, we are being welcomed to join in.

She holds a BFA from the Maine College of Art and an MFA from the University of Michigan and teaches at the University of Maine in Orono, Colby College, Maine Maritime Academy, and privately.
