Last year I went looking for lupine to paint and discovered a large field with an abundance of lupine near route 15 in Deer Isle village. The resulting art work, "The Lupine Field", has been selected for the poster, totes, and tee shirts for this year's annual Deer Isle-Stonington Lupine Festival (June 17-20). The original artwork is a 24" x 36" x 1.5" contemporary mixed media painting using topographical maps and acrylic on canvas. My original painting is on display at The Hutton Gallery, 89 North Deer Isle Road (rte 15) in Deer Isle (207/348-6171). If you are looking for a great place to vacation this summer, our island in Maine has awesome feng shui! Check out the website to see some pics and get some idea of what there is to do here. The Lupine Festival is just one of the many events you can take advantage of. We're the kayaking capital of America, we've got more art galleries per acre than any other location in Maine, and the lobstah is plentiful! See more of Katy Allgeyer Art Studio at this link.
