Freeport Community Library will feature the acrylic landscapes of Freeport resident Jan Brackett for the month of June. Jan was inspired to paint in the mid-70s after seeing painted rocks in a Mid Coast gift shop. She began painting rocks as gifts for family and friends. In the 80s, she moved to painting on canvas, showing and selling some of her work at local sidewalk art sales, including Portland, where she had the most success. Jan prefers to paint realistic scenes, nearly always including water and rocks. Although she pursues realism in her own work, she admires and appreciates many artistic styles. She has only recently returned to painting after an extended departure, so this exhibit will feature both older and newer pieces.
