Miniature portrait of Megunticook Lake and Maidencliff, a handmade art piece
Check out our latest tiny artwork. A two-inch watercolor portrait of Megunticook Lake sits on a tiny wooden easel. This postage stamp view surrounded by mountains, most notably, Maiden Cliff, as it rises dramatically across the lake, comes from the imagination of local Mainer Justin Stephens, a self-taught artist. All of his life he has climbed these mountains, swum this lake and spent many a summer day right here at this very spot in the Fernald's Neck Preserve. He also handcrafted the tiny easel that holds it, along with the palette (the size of a fingernail) and minuscule brush.
This beautiful little keepsake is one of a kind and a reminder of unsurpassed beauty in Midcoast, Maine.
