February 1, 2017 – April 29, 2017 : Michael Loring
Acrylic and watercolor by Michael Loring will be on display through the end of April.
“I am a native Mainer and grew up here in the town of Windham. I started drawing in sixth grade. I went to SMTC during high school to study art as part of my High School Curriculum. I also took some private art lessons during summers while in high school. I attended The Kubert School of Art in New Jersey for two years where I studied comic book illustrations. I also took a couple of water color and acrylic painting classes here and there through the Windham Adult Education.
I enjoy painting realistic outdoor scenes and all types of wildlife, favoring birds and fish. I started entering the annual Maine Duck Stamp Contest about five years ago and won 1st place last year. I enjoy air brushing with acrylics and have done many murals on vehicles, including motor cycles and snow mobiles.
I hope you enjoy my work.”
