Tuesday 207

painting by Jessica Stammen


About this painting: I’ve become accustomed to jumping in the lake on my birthday every year. September 20th is two days before the official start of fall and a quick, cold splash always seems like a fitting finale. However, last night there was scattered frost across the state and so I think this painting will have to do for this year! Likewise, the swimmers in my 207 series will likely not reappear until 2014. Sigh.


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 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.
