Bruce McMillan, VWS | (207) 324-9453 176 County Road, PO Box 85 Shapleigh, ME 04076 After a career as a photo-illustrator I moved on to watercolors, to interpreting what I see, painting on location and from my photos. The voice of my painter grandson is always in mind, \\\"It\\\'s a painting; you can do anything.\\\" I live in Maine, painting daily, and posting to my blog. I minored in art at the University of Maine, and taken watercolor workshops with Susan Abbott, David Dewey, and Dewitt Hardy. I\\\'m a signature member of the Vermont Watercolor Society, a member in Art Guild of the Kennebunks, and Plein Air Painters of Maine. I\\\'m fortunate to have had a successful career in children\\\'s books, illustrated with my photography, more than 45 garnering many honors and awards. I painted a commission for the USA Olympic Curling Team, 2018 Olympics. Honors and Awards: Honorable Mention, Castine (Maine) Plein Air Festival, 2019. Show Poster, Kennebunk River Club, 2019.
