With watercolors, Jean Kigel captures realistically the old-time spirit of dories and sailboats in varying weather conditions. With oils, she paints in her newer style of geometric realism.
This month, the artist presents paintings of boats. “Boating in Maine for Work and for Pleasure” runs from July 3 through 18 at her Back Cove Studio located at 1396 Back Cove Road, Waldoboro.
A native Mainer, Kigel grew up with canoes and rowboats on ponds and streams. After she moved to her Muscongus Bay studio home, she fell in love with lobster boats and sailboats. This show features boats from Back Cove, Waldoboro, as well as Pemaquid Point, Newfoundland, Latvia and China, reflecting her travels to those places.
