One of the country’s most prominent African American artists, David Driskell, died last week. Maine was proud to call him a part time resident since 1961. He was introduced to Maine as a student at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and it remained an inspiration for him since. “I came to the Maine scene with a sense of color already embedded in my mind,” he said in 2008. ”But when I got here, things were so different. The light was so different. I was just so taken by the greenery, I started painting pine trees. And I haven’t really stopped.” https://www.artnews.com/art-news/news/david-c-driskell-dead-1202682906/
