Artist of the Day- Maude Lewis (click on image to view more)

Perhaps the ‘Grandma Moses’ of Canada. Red River Theatre in Concord NH is showing a movie about this artist’s life till August 6th…I think. The film is not easy. Neither was Maude Lewis’ life. In childhood she developed rheumatoid arthritis and became increasingly incapacitated but never let it keep her from painting.  The acting in the film makes it quite gripping…because nothing much happens…it is simply a study of an artist’s challenging life. Very worth a watch…as is her work.
