OGUNQUIT MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

 Standing next to "Lion" by Bernard Langlais

The Ogunquit Museum of American Art in Maine may be small in size, but don't let that fool you. The museum has shown the work of major artists. An outdoor sculpture garden greets visitors who can stroll the grounds and also catch a beautiful view of the ocean. There are plenty of benches to sit down, breathe in some ocean air, revel in the art and do some sketching.

"This is Us"  J.T. Gibson

On our trip, the work of Lois Dodd was featured. The simplicity of her work has always drawn me to it. Dodd studied both art and textile design. 

 "Green Shotgun House, Baton Rouge"  Lois Dodd

 "Red Drape, Blue Shadows"  Lois Dodd

"House and Barn"  Lois Dodd

Close up. Sketching and grid lines were left to show on the final work.
