Come see Cecelia Nunn Haack's beautiful color pencil artwork depicting, in brilliant color, the love of earth, plants and garden life. Currently showing at the Bakery through June, a perfect time to find inspiration for your own garden love!
Cecelia says simply that making art makes her happy, however when pressed to describe her work further, here is what she had to say:
"My art is greatly influenced by the natural world. Inspiration comes from my garden and wild places where nature is untamed. I have created a series of colored pencil paintings vegetables that include the soil, because except for soil scientists our soils receive very little attention. As a gardener, I relish the earthy fragrance of freshly exposed soil. I love the way tiny seeds become luscious vegetables in only a few weeks. For me, there is nothing more joyful than harvesting a fresh carrot or beet.
I am passionate about my flower garden and that is reflected in the floral colored pencil paintings. I find the textures, color and scents in my garden to be an utter delight. I hope you find some pleasure in my paintings."
Stop by and view Cecelia's joyful show during regular Houlton Bakery hours, Tuesday - Saturday, 9 am - 4 pm.
