“Picking up a paintbrush and making marks on a surface excites me,” said South Bristol artist Sally Loughridge, whose solo art show at the Central Lincoln County YMCA in Damariscotta runs through July.
With a portion of the proceeds benefiting the CLC YMCA, these paintings of landscapes and waterscapes are for sale through the artist.
As a child, Loughridge painted with her scientist-artist mother as an observant and creative guide. She continued to paint as an adult and through her long career as a clinical psychologist in Vermont.
Since moving to Maine in 1999, she has focused fully on art — creating, showing, and teaching. She paints primarily in oil and soft pastel.
In this past year of COVID-19 isolation, painting has helped her to center on being creative and hopeful. Loughridge exhibits widely on the Midcoast and has been in many solo, invitational, and juried shows.
