Knitting at the Sea Note Cards
These blank note cards measure 7 1//2" x 4", and are printed on archival paper. Each card and envelope are sealed in a clear sleeve. The cards are printed from an 12" X 26" oil painting (on canvas) titled "Knitting Goose Rocks Beach". The cards are printed in Bangor, Maine.
Artist Peggy Clark Lumpkins has been a painter for 50 years. She studied at The San Francisco Academy of Art and at Pratt Institute. She knew what she wanted and needed to paint, so she took a leave of absence from school and never looked back.
"The clearest way for me to say how I feel about what I see is to paint it. There are no words to say everything as clearly as I can with my brush and colors."
She moved to Brownville, Maine, in 1987, with her husband to build their house and gardens, and raise their two sons inside the embrace of art. Her children often accompanied her as she set up her easel somewhere on the coast of Maine. Even though they are out on their own now, she still feels their warmth and laughter when she goes out painting.
