My initial foray into art was as a ten-year-old when my parents enrolled me in watercolor lessons. A gradually developing (and undiagnosed until some years later) case of nearsightedness however diminished my interest. (How can you paint something that you can’t see clearly?) By the time I was outfitted with glasses, I was on my way to a career in science as a physiologist. After retiring and moving to Maine with my wife Dawn in 2007, and some fifty years after my first lessons, Dawn and artist Joye Moon convinced me to pick up a paintbrush again. Since that time, I have been privileged to learn from Maine artists, Judith Kinsman, Guy Corriero, Dennis Rafferty, Russel Whitten, Susan Roux, Dan Graziano, and of course my immensely talented wife.
I paint in oil, acrylic, and watercolor and am a member of the Art Guild of the Kennebunks. My paintings have been juried into shows of the New England Watercolor Society, the Rockport Art Association, the University of Southern Maine, and the Union of Maine Visual Artists. My work can be seen at the Wright Gallery in Cape Porpoise, Maine, and online on both my website, mikemaron.artspan.com and saatchiart.com.
