"A boat trip from Port Clyde to Monhegan Island, Maine is a favorite with visitors for its quaint and picturesque visuals," says artist Paula Martino. Part of a Paula's Maine coast series. This piece offers a view from the ferry as it pulls away from the pier featuring the wooden dock poles and the businesses that line the water on a breezy day. Dark stenciled shadows under the pier provide definition to the bright sunlight bouncing off a yellow-white canopy. "The churning water is highlighted with a thick collage and the breezes are implied with sky stenciling."

Artist Paula Martino paints impressionist scenes, especially of places with water. “They reflect the energy and emotions I feel when I see a compelling locale I visit,” says Paula. Using various tools, she applies thick layers of color with oil or acrylic paint and sometimes uses stencil work. With her palette knife technique, she unveils strands of lighter hues amidst her dominantly saturated palette, creating a semi-abstract element. Paula worked as a CPA for thirty-five years running her own tax practice while raising three children, with one having Down Syndrome. All the while pursuing art part-time in a studio her husband built for her in their basement. After retiring in 2020, she decided to pursue her art practice fully, studying in earnest with nationally recognized colorists, portrait artists, and landscape painters. “The experiences of caregiving and tax prep forced me to be very conscientious and organized with my time and efforts. I needed to be so completely organized for so long that it is a relief to be a little messy in my studio.”
