Artist Alicia J. Stonebreaker, Polish born and trained at the Academy of Fine Arts, Poznan, Poland and the Kassel Art Academy in Germany, sketched this wind raked island and lobster boat off the coast of Maine on April 7, 1974. If you have been on the Maine coast in April you know the temperature is normally in the forties at this time, often colder with a stiff wind blowing. Her pencil and sketch pad were always with her and she never missed an opportunity to capture what she thought was a great spot to paint. She would often return to her sketch pad to expand the scene into a much larger watercolor painting. Alicia brings out the raw beauty and ruggedness of the Maine coast with this sketch. A few dark and soft lines and she has skillfully defined the rocky island shoreline and trees, the perfect lobster boat at mooring, and the bay perspective with a distant shoreline.
