"Of course, there comes a time when the hard work comes—all the decisions that need to be made. Pale or dark? Thick or thin? Loose or tight? Flat or dimensional? Edges? Patterns? Lines? Textures? Shadows? Each painting is the accumulated result of a thousand decisions," explains artist Ellen Welch Granter. "What is my process? Don't ask me; I only know that I love being up to my elbows in it."

 

On Saturday, July 6, Maine Art Hill in Kennebunk is thrilled to host Ellen Welch Granter's solo summer show at The Gallery at the Grand at 1 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. The show opens at 10 am with an artist reception from 5-7 pm. This event is open to everyone, and no ticket is required.

Throughout her life, Granter has always created, be it painting, designing clothes, knitting, or making jewelry. Her career took some interesting turns before she became a full-time artist. This included seven years of studying Chinese and a thirty-year career as a graphic designer, all of which have influenced her unique artistic style. 

 

“At each fork in my road, I kept finding myself turning toward painting. It was what I loved,” shares Granter. “I love the possibilities of a few new tubes of paint, a handful of good brushes, a blank canvas, and the glimmer of what I hope might be a promising idea.”

Granter loves the natural world. A born mudlark, she constantly searches for sea glass, shells, and treasures. She is also an avid birder and skilled water watcher.

 

“As a painter, when I am at the beach,” Graner says. “I am torn between looking down at the random compositions of the snarled seaweed, driftwood, and shells in the wrack line and looking up at the surf and skies for birds and clouds.”
