Fields and Trees of Maine
“In Maine, you find a different kind of peace. Fields, trees, branches, color, light, air, open space, water–we have it all here in Maine. Whether it’s looking up at trees in our suburban neighborhoods, driving down country highways, or walking trails to the lakes and sea, we have a visual peace and quiet within reach. Rather than wrapping your arms around yourself as you might in the closed quiet of the forest, you instead take a deep breath and spread your arms wide.”
Although she studied art in school, Liz Hoag took a long hiatus from painting. Now that she’s back, she’s focusing on everyday Maine and the beauty that’s within reach for all of us. Liz has been happily painting the fields and woods of Maine since 2010.
