Artist Statement For Beverly Bono As a painter, I am largely self-taught, learning from books, workshops and following other artists online. But by far my biggest influence came from Emile Gruppe of the Cape Ann artist colony. I had the privilege of meeting him and was fortunate to purchase one of his paintings. In 2019, I won 2nd place among 75 non-juried artists in the Quick Draw event at the Cape Ann Plein Air Festival in Massachusetts. About 10 years ago, one of my artist friends invited me to go plein air painting (painting outside) and I was hooked! Nothing can compare to painting from life! Now retired, I can paint every day. Living in Bar Harbor, near Acadia National Park provided boundless stimulation for my oil paintings. It is was a wonderfully endless journey to capture the beautiful scenery of the island! Our recent move to Topsham, ME has opened up all new subject matter for my plein air paintings!
