Lindsay Hopkins-Weld

Lindsay lives full time in Maine, spending 5 plus months a year up on Mount Desert Island where she spent every summer as a child. She fils her time photographing, painting, rug hooking and hiking with her dogs. Her oil paintings focus on the natural beauty of her surroundings. She is fortunate to spend many days on the water, exploring far away islands, where most of her inspiration comes from. Of particular interest is the reflective qualities of water, cloud formations, boats, the transition from day to night and calm to storm. She is mostly interested in conveying mood and exploring the boundaries between realism and abstraction.
