Connecticut-based artist Sarah Baskin paints impressionistic watercolor landscapes and seascapes. She is attracted to the transparency of watercolor and how the white of the paper shines through the paint. In each image she paints, Sarah aspires to be a painter of light, focusing on how the sunlight plays across the side of a building or how it sparkles on the snow or in the water and on how shadows stretch across a landscape.
Sarah has recently exhibited work in the Voice of Art’s Two/Three-Person Show at the Litchfield Inn in Litchfield, Connecticut, and the Hands on the Land: Art and the Environment in the Connecticut River Valley Exhibit in Essex, Connecticut, co-sponsored by the Connecticut River Museum and the Lyme Art Association. Sarah is a member of American Women Artists, the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society, Plein Air Painters of Maine, and the Deer Isle Artists Association.
Baskin’s artwork is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.
