Freeport Community Library will feature Janet Lawrence’s meditative watercolors for the month of October.
Throughout her life, Lawrence has always loved the arts. As a child, she drew the cartoons she watched on TV. She constantly sketched people or things around her. After graduating high school, she pursued an Art Degree at Daytona Beach Community College, and then transferred to the University of North Florida where she received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts Degree. Moving to Maine has inspired her to paint even more. Lawrence constantly finds herself drawn to Maine’s beautiful landscapes with intentions of capturing the moment in paint.
Watercolor is her favorite medium because it is both challenging and versatile. The process of mixing and consistency can be planned or spontaneous, lending an element of surprise to the piece when dry. She also loves painting with watercolor because she can use pen and ink, gouache or other mediums to achieve her visions. Her favorite subject is nature: its colors, tranquility, and the inspiration of discovering new places. She is also quite fond of painting wildlife. Her endless motivation and inspiration is attributed to her supportive husband, family, and friends.
Lawrence is a Freeport Art Guild member and also volunteers for the Freeport Players, painting backdrops and props for their shows.
