Wordless Wednesday: Robert Solotaire's Art Studio

Guest Dad blogger Benjamin Solotaire submitted this photo of his own Dad's art studio in Portland, Maine. The late Robert Solotaire was a much-admired painter who gave us lush Maine landscapes, New York Cityscapes and large-scale industrial scenes. He had an unusual point-of-view, often viewing his subject matter from the back; a loading dock, a highway underpass, a patch of hedges unnoticed by others. This is a photo of the studio where he painted, in the overgrown backyard of his old house in Portland. Robert Solotaire's work can be viewed at I know that wasn't exactly wordless, but didn't you want to know?

    It was a great studio. The overgrown nature surrounding the place mirrored the bedlam inside, except for the easel in the eye of the storm.
