Bernard, Maine


Art Paine, from over in Bernard, has been an artist since childhood.  He grew up on an island similar to this -- Jamestown, in Rhode Island.  It was a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful boats, and he loved to draw.  Art and his twin brother Chuck were early recognized as “child prodigies” in the art world of R. I.  Both attended special programs at Rhode Island School of Design for young artists with limited means. Both also learned to design, build, and race sailboats.  One time when only fifteen years old the pair drew custom sketches of all the winners of the Narragansett Bay Regatta as prizes. – a hundred different works!  Art has sold paintings throughout this country, in Europe, the Caribbean and the Bahamas.  He teaches marine art, oil painting, and watercolor in Rockland, Maine and has plans to soon teach workshop classes locally.

If interested Art’s marine, portrait, seascape and landscape art, or conceptual yacht design, please get in touch with him at 207 244 5845 or at  Art loves to talk art.
