Speers Gallery Artist
November Artist

laudholm farmDuring November, "Nature At Its Best” the works of Karen Gosselin-Diebolt will be on display in the Speers Gallery.

Mrs. Gosselin-Diebolt’s works are in mixed media, using oil on canvas, wooden plaques, wooden boxes and accent furniture. She started to dabble with painting years ago but then forgot about it, starting up again just over a year ago.

"Partaking in my husband’s interest with the outdoors and studying nature, painting landscapes is a perfect fit. I try to bring the splendor and beauty of nature indoors through my paintings, but if you like what you see in my works, spend some time outdoors and enjoy "Nature At Its Best” firsthand.”

"In my private studio located in the hills of Wells Branch, I produce wonderful artwork without interruption. I have learned from observation and developing my own techniques. I devote time every day to the creation of my scenes.”

There will be a reception in the Speers Gallery on Sat., Nov. 1 from 2 to 4 PM. The public is welcome to attend.

The Kennebunk Free Library is pleased to present the work of this talented artist.
