Winslow Homer's Maine

A Summer Night Interesting article on Winslow Homer's studio in Prout's Neck, Maine, recently from the NY Times. Makes me miss Maine. Something to aspire to - surrounded by what you love so you can just work. It looks as though his studio will become a small museum in the near future.

“Nowhere else is there so rich a spectrum of an artist’s chosen subject matter,” said Daniel O’Leary, a former director of the Portland Museum of Art and the studio project. “There is no place like it in America because no where else can you see a great American artist’s inspiration take shape and observe the actual views that he enriches and preserves. At no other single spot can you see 15 or 16 views that inspired great paintings.”
