About the Artist

''The paintings of Central Maine artist, Penny Oliphant, typically depict a bygone era in style and subject&#59; her 50''s landscapes are hardly run-of-the-mill and their demure softness expresses a nostalgic elegance that is a pleasure to observe.'' ?Edgar Allen Beem

Accomplished Contemporary Maine Artist for over 30 years, Penny Oliphant works out of her beautiful studio in Pittsfield, Maine. Her works have been shown in galleries and museums throughout Maine and New England.

Penny''s favorite subjects for her paintings are the back roads of Maine, nostalgic landscapes with cars, diners, drive-ins circa the 50''s. She also likes to paint neon, motels, old gas stations, local events, fairs and parades. Also a favorite of hers is painting from old family photographs.
