Part of artist Paula Martino's Maine series, she offers a multi-media depiction inspired by the flourishing coastal view of Monhegan Island. "The verdant growth along the coast on a sunny day in June is almost indescribable," says Paula. "One feels compelled to paint it, despite windy conditions." She captures the bright sunny view of the Atlantic Ocean with a vibrant portrayal of the coast. Warm and cool greens are offset with blue hues with the addition of brown, yellow, and magenta. Paula created the scene with collages and stenciling that provides both tactile and visual textures. With the view and Paula's technique, the result is a quiet respite and peaceful feel of the ocean.

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.”
