Tuesday 207

paintings by Jessica Stammen


About this painting: Like any small business owners in the state of Maine my parents know how short, intense, and important the summer season is for their livelihood. My mom’s store in Camden is a beautiful place — but so is Megunticook Lake, just a two mile drive from town. Even a short, end-of-day escape by kayak can be restorative. I love this image of my mom with the red light of evening bouncing all around — off her jacket, off the lightly rippling surface, off the exposed rock on the ridge line above.


Every Tuesday The Maine will post a new painting (or two, like this week) by Jessica Stammen. These small works, all 4 x 4 inches on cradled birchwood panels, will be concurrently listed for auction on dailypaintworks.com, a fantastic platform designed by artists, for artists. View the auction for this painting here or simply click on the image.

Tuesday 207 paintings are exclusive to The Maine. They depict the land, the light and the people that make this state a state of wonder. Visit the growing gallery of Tuesday 207 paintings here.
