Greg Sturniolo, Maine Artist

Greg Sturniolo—born in New York, raised in Brunswick, and now resident in Portland—has created some Maine landscapes that deserve a worldwide audience. His website features several, painted in his traditional, realistic style—from "Maine Farm in Fall" to "St. Ann's Episcopal." My favorite has to be "Belted Galways at Spurwink Farm"—chock-full of Maine's sometimes eerie atmosphere.

The works in Sturniolo's Five Hockey Paintings series are available for purchase at the Portland Pirates Online Team Store, together with limited-edition prints of each. Sales will help the Portland Pirates Foundation fund construction of a pirate-ship replica for the Children's Museum of Maine.
