ViridianArt's Profile

About

Contemporary realism painter Laurie Breton has lived her entire life in Maine, and she feels a close connection to the New England landscape. Her paintings of Maine country roads, New England cityscapes, and old houses reflect those deep roots. As a self-taught artist, Breton paints what she feels in her heart. Every scene she commits to canvas was chosen because it has struck some deep emotional chord in her, and she tries to infuse her work with that same strong emotion.

As we seek meaning in our busy lives, we tend to overlook the ordinary, the everyday, the familiar places and things that shape who and what we are. Even as we continually seek that elusive "something else," the overlooked ordinary—the innate sense of home—is the reality in which we live our lives. That reality is what Breton tries to paint. She wants her work to take the viewer to that home-place each of us holds inside.
