Maine painter Mary Brooking brings this sad news:The painting is 20"x 20" and can be seen here. If you any info about the theft, contact Mary Brooking or Westbrook Police's Detective Steve Crocker (email@example.com).
On March 8 in the late afternoon, someone stole one of her paintings from the
Frog & Turtle restaurant in Westbrook. The title of the painting is "Startle
Blue." It is a soft landscape, in blue and earth tones, showing a marsh, water
and mountains. Its title is written on the back, along with Brooking's full
signature and the year, 2008. Brooking's small signature ("m-a-r-y" in a square)
is in the lower right corner of the painting.
