“I suppose that art is a matter of perspective.

Year after year I seem to paint the same things…always a swimmer, always a boat, trees and lakes , maybe a bear, always my siblings, my family, my home.

One might say I am standing still, but I don’t think so. Sometimes you must look really closely, over and over to find what’s essential. I see the world one small piece at a time.

I was once asked if I could go anywhere, where would that be.

I think that Maine is as nice a place as any and I would like to stay for awhile. I believe that is no small thing.” – Mary Bourke
