Tina Ingraham. A unique style with soft brushstrokes, wonderful color palette, and charming subject matter. Tina also mentors (coaches) students, so if you’re interested, be sure to check out her website.

The Islanders Breakfast. Lovely painting. Happy colors. There is depth to Tina’s paintings and it really makes them stand out! Nice soft edges and fabulous light in this painting!

Open Door II by Tina Ingraham  12×18″  Oil

Another wonderful painting (It wasn’t easy to pick two images!) – I love the light on this building and all the layers underneath. Fabulous! Tina leaves out the details which makes the overall painting so much stronger. The sky, clouds and utility pole just add more charm. Both of these paintings are available at Sylvan Gallery in Wiscasset, Maine!
