Duxbury painter Bettina Lesieur has always been passionate about art. Inspired by the South Shore’s beautiful natural surroundings, her paintings capture the subtle movements, light and texture of the landscape. Lesieur hosts a gallery show each summer and features examples of her recent works. This year’s event is titled “The Changing of Tides.”
“I have been focusing a lot on the tides,” says Lesieur. “It’s been quite a challenge, but fun.” Lesieur spends a lot of time perfecting her paintings until they are just right. “Each painting has its own message and the endless power to evoke feelings in the viewer,” says Lesieur. She hopes that her paintings transcend time and continue to bring pleasure and a sense of calmness to the viewer.
