My Maine: The Coastal Watercolors of Normand Chartier
Although he spends most of the year teaching and painting in Connecticut, internationally recognized artist Normand Chartier’s heart lies in Maine, where he rents a cottage on Southport Island every summer and spends hours capturing the essence of the coast in his unique style. Here, the reader will find old farmhouses that grace tidal coves as no modern structure could; lobster boats whose curves and ruggedness match those of the shoreline along which they fish; and spruce-graced, granite shorelines found nowhere else in America. A treat for the eyes, My Maine reminds all of us of the treasures that the Maine coast has to offer.

"Maine - its very essence of shoreside homes, cluttered yards or just a clouded sky beyond a high outcropping of granite - is right before you in these 75 evocative watercolors." -- Maine Sunday Telegram
