artist feature: Pamela S. Creamer

Water-Dog • Acrylic on Canvas 18" x 60" diptych
While we were on our anniversary trip, we took the opportunity to visit lots of shops. And I mean lots. Boston + various small towns in Maine provided a plethora of unique handmade artisans of whom I am glad to now be acquainted.

Baltimore Oriole • Acrylic on Canvas 6" x 6"
One of these artists was Pamela S. Creamer, whose work can be found in The Creative Turtle gallery in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. I could have lived in this place. The gallery was full of life: flowers, birds, pets and farm animals.

Pamela was actually in the gallery painting during our visit, so I was able to tell her how much I admired her work. She said, "You must love color!" And indeed, I do. But I also love nature and the personality she paints into each subject - which especially shows through in her pet portraits.

Two Ladies • Acrylic on Canvas 24" x 36"

In the words of the artist herself:

"Whether is is a lively calf, a sensitive horse or a colorful landscape I am always mindful of the energy that I convey in my paintings.  The subjects that I chose reveal themselves as passionate expressions of my love of both nature and the animals that grace our lives. Enjoy!"
