Greenhut Galleries in Portland presents new work by J Thomas R Higgins and Glenn Renell.
“Regenerating Slope #13” by J Thomas R Higgins
A plein air painter of the first degree, Tom Higgins balances both art and nature – the act of painting and the subject of his painting – in equal measure at the tip of his brush. His enthusiasm for his subject – usually a respectful view of a solitary Maine prospect – and his interest in technique, applying paint quickly before the moment passes, has propelled him to the front ranks of contemporary Maine landscape painters.
“Agua Prieta” by Glenn Renell
Having taught for twenty-two years at the Maine College of Art, Glenn Renell now spends his days painting full time, moving comfortably back and forth from colorful, high-keyed paintings to high contrast (black-and-white) landscapes of Maine and the southwest. The color complexion of his highly sensitive landscapes are infused with his experience of painting in the American Southwest.
