Newagen Seaside Inn is pleased to host a series of one-day Plein air oil painting retreats conducted by Maine artist, Sandy Harper.  For over thirty years the beauty of Maine has inspired Sandy to paint its seascapes, coastal villages, lighthouses, and inland landscapes.

Recognized for her masterful Maine seascapes and landscapes Sandy’s paintings are rendered in a realistic style reflecting her deep appreciation of the light, shapes and colors found in nature.  As a result of much time spent in the mid-coast area, Newagen, Southport Island, Boothbay Harbor and its environments are frequently featured in her work.
