Dimensions of Daisy (Now Revealed!)
by Damariscotta Artist:
Daisy Greene on exhibit from Tuesday March 19 through April 30.
To celebrate Dimensions of Daisy (Now Revealed!) a reception will be held in the main dining room on
with beer and wine as well as delectable finger foods.
As those who know her work will agree, Daisy is heart and soul a Maine artist. Since moving from Cape Cod in the early nineties, Daisy has lived in Newcastle, Bremen, and now Damariscotta. The subjects of her paintings have centered around her love of the Maine coast, with large, strongly executed paintings of winter pines, blueberry barrens, Maine villages, and isolated saltwater farms. Daisy’s landscapes capture the rugged beauty of Maine’s pine forests, coastal villages and blueberry barrens, with strong hues and bold strokes. Her style is often toughly realistic, and sometimes more reflective of abstract patterns and colors evocative of scenes of Maine’s off-coast landscapes. She loves the rugged look of Maine in all seasons, but snow and ice-covered pines and streams under late winter afternoon skies are a particular focus for her.
Although much of her later work is done in acrylics on large wooden panels, over the course of her career Daisy has painted in many media. After earning her bachelor’s degree at Plymouth State in New Hampshire, she completed graduate work at Lesley College in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she obtained a Masters in Education in the Integrated Arts Program. She went on to study individually with many noted artists, including Charles Sovek, Robin Young, Marylin Schofield, Doug Dawson, and Michael Kelsey Johnson.
Before coming to Maine, Daisy was a frequent exhibitor at the Creative Arts Center in Chatham, Mass, and has had one-person shows in Brewster, Mass. In the Midcoast Maine area she has exhibited her work in Raymond, in Pemaquid, and in Damariscotta at the Firehouse Gallery, and at the Roundtop Center for the Arts. Daisy taught acrylic painting at Roundtop for seven years. This year, when spring finally arrives, her work will be shown again at the Stable Gallery, in Damariscotta.
Daisy's paintings are represented in the collection of General Dynamics in New Haven, Connecticut, as well as other permanent corporate collections. Her paintings are also held by many private collectors throughout Maine and New England and other parts of the US, and as far afield as in Canada and Scotland.
