Today's cover art is "American Apple Pie," oil on linen by Killingworth artist Diane Afton Aeschliman, whose interest in painting began when she was a child living in Europe. She pursued her passion for painting with a major in fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design. As an associate professor at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, she taught drawing and painting for 14 years. Her classical approach emphasizes fine draftsmanship, a clear vision and vibrant use of color. She offers several portrait/figure workshops annually at the Lyme Art Association as well as summer figure and landscape workshops at her home studio, the Killingworth Atelier.
