“This Series:Sneeze was inspired by recent airplane travel between Maine and Texas. I was sitting near a person who sneezed a lot. I thought about slow motion films of sneezing and the contained environment of the plane. Yes, it’s all a bit disturbing but also quite fascinating.”

“This series was inspired by my time in Austin, Texas. Exploring the Lady Bird River and energized by the Austin community of people who play on and around the river even when it is 100 degrees outside in September. As well as the huge bat population and the fabulous river boat tour I took at sunset to see them fly.”

Watercolor Summer. Following Toby Gordon, Miroslav Sasek

Watercolor Summer. Following Toby Gordon, Miroslav Sasek. Erin McGee Ferrell works on paper. Emulating 1960 Illustrator and Maine Artist friend.

“These past months I have been inspired by my fellow artist, Toby Gordon. She daily is posting new works on paper on instagram. I so love the freshness of each of her beautiful sketches I spent time this summer revisiting watercolors. At the same time a friend passed along a children’s book to me authored and illustrated by Miroslav Sasek. Below I’ve copy and pasted some Wikipedia info on the 1960’s artist. What started for my in New Orleans and has continued through the Cape Elizabeth’s Maine Paint For Preservation has been an enthusiastic re-exploration of ink, pen, and water.”

Miroslav Sasek

M. Sasek was born in Prague in 1916 and died in Switzerland in 1980. He worked as a painter and illustrator for most of his life. Starting with This is Paris published in 1958, the books he wrote painted a delightful and evocative picture of some of the world’s great cities (and countries!). Read more:
