The two talented artists have been married for the past thirty-seven years. Each create their own distinctive work, completely different than the other. They have become each other’s advocates, sharing techniques, bouncing ideas off of each other and critiquing the work. “We drive every year to our studio in Maine,” said Marjorie. “The drive gives us the opportunity to experience much of the country as we accumulate photographic images that can be used as references for future paintings.” Bob added, “This provides rich and diverse resources to express our view of Americana. Bob went on to explain, that “Natural Gas,” one of their collaborations, has a dual intent. “At first glance the viewer usually laughs at the surprising interaction between cows and traffic.” Margie added that there is also the deeper meaning dealing with environmental issues. “Our collective view produces a synthesizing commentary on an American experience, continued Margie, while Bob chimed in…”It is contemporary Americana.”
