Plein Air Artist, Mary Byrom, Paints At The Hartwell House Inn of Ogunquit
On September 28th from 4 to 5 in the afternoon, guests and collectors alike are welcomed to meet acclaimed artist, Mary Byrom, as she paints in the backyard gardens of the romantic Hartwell House Inn during a festive afternoon tea service at our Shore Road location in Ogunquit, Maine.
Mary Byrom works mostly from life, using the Alla Prima method of oil painting with a focus on plein air landscape painting. True to the practice of plein air she is outdoors year round painting on location. It is from this collection of field sketches that her large studio paintings are developed.
Byrom recently donated her painting, “Dusk on the Marginal Way”, to the Marginal Way Preservation Fund.
Byrom is also fresh off of a very successful opening for some of her work at the Beth Ellis Cove Gallery in Perkins Cove.
“When I’m outdoors,” states Byrom, “I am consciously slowing down. I am looking and thinking about what I see and how I see it. I love the experience of being out in nature, watching the pace of the light crossing the landscape and the clouds moving across the sky.”
We’re certain you’ll enjoy witnessing the creativity and passion of Mary Byrom at our celebrated Ogunquit B&B – and it’s not too late to book a room for the evening – give us a call today at 207-646-7210.
