BRISTOL — Patti Leavitt and Hannah Ineson are neighbors in Maine and in Florida and both are showing some of their artwork at the Pemaquid Gallery this summer.

Leavitt, of South Bristol and Bonita Springs, Fla., works exclusively in pastel, and she often features buildings including farm scenes, as well as the villages found along the Maine coast. She also finds subject material in woodlands and still life, and she is currently developing seascapes as a primary interest. 

Ineson, of Damariscotta and Naples, Florida, comes from a family of artists, but she didn’t begin painting until she was an adult. She began working in watercolor and attended many workshops with painters drawn to the Maine coast during the summer. During the past four decades, Ineson has explored print-making, oil, acrylic and pastel as well as watercolor. 

She said she experiments with new subjects and techniques. As an instructor in watercolor journaling, Inseon is working on several projects including a how-to book, publishing an illustrated watercolor journal of Maine lighthouses and teaching an online journaling course.

Both artists show their work throughout the area, and Ineson’s work also can be found at
