By the Ice Pond by Beth Rundquist 12×16″ Oil

My husband and I had the pleasure of seeing Beth Rundquist’s painting up close at the Island Inn dining room (Monhegan, Maine). Each year the Island Inn collaborates with the Lupine Gallery to create a stunning show that is displayed in the Island Inn dining room for that season – What a treat it is! Last year it was a show featuring the late Don Stone and others who had painted with him. It was an amazing body of work, each piece as beautiful as the next. This painting of Beth’s was in that show. What struck me is the thick layers of paint and how they were applied – it really added a WOW factor. The colors blended giving such texture and depth to the road, incredible!
