"I have always been fascinated by dusk," says artist Don Demers, "with the changing color of the light. While the sun performs its swan song with an elaborate display of reds, oranges and yellows, the night is beginning its serenade of blues and greens. It's a quiet time of the day, but the peacefulness is often contrasted by a full spectrum of exciting colors. These conditions are often best observed along the coast, and a sailing vessel drifting homeward on the last breath of the day's breeze can witness the sun's final color as well as the rising moon."
"Between the Sun and the Moon" demonstrates why Demers is a modern master of his medium. "Like any skilled portrait artist, Demers is able to give life and personality to his subject," "Yankee Magazine" says. "His skies can look menacing or serene, fogbound or idyllic. He can create a spectrum of seas . . . sparkly or frothy, wind-whipped or flat."
Don Demers is one of a handful of premier maritime painters working today. Crewing aboard schooners, square-riggers and other traditional craft have provided both the foundation for his technical expertise and the vision to transfer his first-hand experience to the canvas. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Marine Artists, a member of the Guild of Boston Artists, the California Art Club, and a signature member of the Plein Air Painters of America. He has won a record seventeen awards at the Mystic International Marine Art Exhibition. His illustrations have been recognized by the Museum of American Illustration four times in their national competition representing the finest examples of work in the field. He conducts workshops for artists and lectures on his art and maritime experiences, both here and abroad.
