A Day at the Beach :: Aline Ordman

Showing: July 2009

Our featured artists, Aline Ordman and John Schmidtberger, have captured through their unique and individual interpretations, the perfect Maine memories from walking along the shore or having a day at the beach.

Aline Ordman is influenced and inspired by the New Hampshire and Vermont environment in which she lives. Her paintings not only reflect the area landscapes, but are also inspired by the particular qualities of light and color. Her landscapes, figures and still lifes use these qualities to illuminate the human and natural worlds, to capture the beauty that radiates from a particular passing moment. A flicker of light on a shoulder, a splash of sun on a summer hat, flakes of light in a stand of maples, a shower of late afternoon sun on a hillside- these are the moments that attract her.
