Lisa Kyle Art
Oil painter, painting the landscapes of Maine.
I use a mix of both basswood panels and stretch canvas in both oil and acrylic mediums to paint landscapes and conceptual work. Lately I will incorporate cold wax into many of my recent oil work as well as oil sticks using a combination of brushwork, rollers, scrape edges, cloth damping, and pallette knives depending on what the work and composition dictates in terms of layering and drying time to achieve the desired effect. My early work is heavily influenced by hard-edge mid-century abstraction but recently I have branched out in the past year to explore opacity, relationships with color theory and movement within the composition. My goal is to capture the energy, sound, and activity within each composition.

Cottage by the C
Welcome to a World of My Art. I am C.K. Higgison painter of whimsical worlds, designer of clothing infused with great karma and my own original designs, retired art teacher of elementary school kids, mother, grandmother, wife and Maine resident for over 48 years. This is my website. Curious about Cottage by the C ? Origins of my site name stem from the fact that for over 16 years nearly all my paintings had small houses or cottages in them, and C is the first letter of my first name. I secured the domain name way back in the early 2000's and the name has stuck. Painting created using matte acrylics and chalk paint and most are on stretched canvas. I coat them with a buffed wax to protect the surface and give each a soft lustrous appearance. Some images are available as prints on wrapped canvas.
Original watercolor painting, landscape, seascape, florals.
When I began as a art student, I wasn't entirely sure of what my goals may be. I knew I was inspired by Andrew Wyeth and several other painters, but I had no definite ideas. I wasn't long into my classes at the Art Students' League before my true path as a painter became apparent. The Art Students' League is an excellent place to learn the art of painting. It's a place you go to paint. It surprised me how quickly I became enthralled with color. Not just color for color's sake, but how color existed in nature. Color with a little form expresses everything in the visual world. When I started getting good results from my nature sketches, I knew I was hooked. I have been painting from life ever since. Everything in my painting revolves around natural color. I think it's the common ground from which a visual person gets involved. If a viewer is involved with one of my paintings for some time, I know that painting is a success. But what can someone get form one of my paintings? I can only answer that by explaining what I'm trying to do. I'm a little hesitant to put it this way, but I'm really trying to create something beautiful. I am trying in a very sincere way to capture the essence of a moment in nature. If you color, composition, or overall execution is off, the painting won't work. It's a very fine line. It is so hard to capture a windy day or feeling of cold, but that's the challenge. It's mostly about color with me, but I feel very strongly that the end result should be something special: a work of art.

Scott Perry Photography
Landscape photography of Maine. The Next Best thing to Being There For many years I worked throughout Maine as a freelance photographer primarily for the Associated Press and the Maine Times. My photos appeared in newspapers and magazines around the world including Newsweek, the New York Times, USA Today, and National Geographic Magazine. I enjoyed capturing bits of history on film and sharing it with others through the news media. However, I often found myself wanting to get more into my pictures than the normal window of view regular 35mm cameras could provide. I now work with digital cameras making as wide a view as I want by stitching images together. I also create digital “paintings” when the subject calls for it. They are available for purchase online and and at selected art shows and galleries. My goal is to create views within the confines of a picture frame that are so expansive and magnificent, they will make you feel you are at the place the picture was taken. I hope my photography will rekindle your memories of a special place and help you share the beauty of that special place with others.
