About this painting: It’s been six years since my brother has seen Maine in the summertime, six years since his last swim in Megunticook, a lake carved out by receding glaciers so long ago that human impatience can be measured by a blink in comparison. We jump the guardrail where the shore drops steeply into depths that chill us, that remind us of time.

About this painting: “The water’s cooled down quite a bit. We’ll have to make a dive for it. Ready, set…go!”

Every Tuesday The Maine will post a new painting 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 the first painting here, the second painting here, or simply click on either image.
