How creative is this painting? You see the angel… and the apple… the fabulous trees, the moonlit water, the rocky coast… what’s not to love about this?
Read a blip about Ann from the Dowling Walsh website:
Ann Getsinger grew up in Watertown, Connecticut, studied in San Francisco and has spent most of her life either in the Berkshire Hills of far western Massachusetts or in coastal Maine.
The youngest of five in a creative household, as a child she often spent time either at the dairy farm next door or in the surrounding woods where natures creativity influenced her powerfully. After attending Paier School of art in New Haven, CT, and the San Francisco Art Institute, she settled permanently in western Massachusetts where she studied with realist artist Sheldon Fink.
The coast of Maine has been a lifelong love beginning with family vacations as a child and now continuing in her family’s home near Port Clyde. The experiences of sea and shore, along with views of Mosquito Island and Head , have been incorporated into Ann’s work countless times in all weather, seasons and circumstances. From the age of twelve, exposure to the artwork seen in the nearby Farnsworth Museum in Rockland, Maine, especially the work of the Wyeth family, has been pivotal.
The artists’ home and studio, since 1988, is in the rural Berkshire town of New Marlborough, Massachusetts. Ann’s oil paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries and hang in hundreds of homes.
