Item Description

"Our Town & Fireflies, Flutters and Wings" - I met a girl - a woman, recently, who reminded me of the angel I saw when I was two and a half years old and I went up to talk to her. Turns out she knows a lot about angels, too. We talked for almost eight hours and I came home with this image strongly in my mind's eye, so I painted it onto the buoy, which was handy. It's all about the start of something much bigger.  C. Wilder Oakes, June 13th, 2014.


I was born in the old Knox Hospital in Rockland, and raised in Port Clyde, America. I've always drawn on the inspirations my hometown has provided, but always with an eye towards the bigger picture, the universal/transcendent. I strive for themes that transcend physical space and time, and my hope is to reach for a spiritual setting the viewer can trace roots to.

Currently showing at GALLERY BY THE SEA, Port Clyde, Maine, which is located next to the Village Ice Cream store, at 875A Port Clyde Rd.
