Are you familiar with the artist Eric Hopkins? His beautiful renderings of Maine’s landscapes continue long tradition of artists being inspired by the sublime landscape there. This list includes Edward Hopper, Fairfield Porter, Andrew Wyeth, Jamie Wyeth, Alex Katz, Winslow Homer and Neil Welliver. If you’re lucky enough to be in Maine this summer, check out his gallery in Rockland (a stone’s throw from The Farnsworth Museum) and/or his show at Isalos Fine Art in Stonington, Maine.

    Thanks for your post about Eric Hopkins’ work and gallery in Rockland, Maine. I love the selection of paintings you chose to share– “Flying over Blue Bay” is a great example of the aerial island views for which Eric is best known, but the other two–”Bridge and Back Cove Abstraction” and “Wave Patterns-Tree Patterns”– really show his full range and point to the conceptual underpinnings of his creativity. Emphasizing the underlying rhythms and patterns in nature is a core element of Eric’s work. Another interesting feature: “Bridge and Back Cove Abstraction” is one of his pyrographs, or fire drawings. The dark lines on the paper are burn marks made with molten glass.

    Hi Robin! The ones with the molten glass burns were my favorites when I saw them in person in your gallery.
