For 50 years, Pine Tree Society’s holiday cards have featured quintessential Maine art showcasing the beauty of winter. What a difference a card makes! Three million dollars in card sales has had a tremendous impact and transformed the lives of people with disabilities.
When you send your holiday cards this year, you can do so with pride knowing that Maine artists are helping you help Maine people, one card at a time.
This year’s cards feature work by Richard Hasenfus of Georgetown and Marieluise Hutchinson of Cushing. Both artists have designed cards for Pine Tree Society in previous years. In fact, Richard Hasenfus’ first card design, titled “Peaceful Harbor,” was in 1969.
“Big Red Barn”
Marieluise Hutchinson brings us a captivating painting featuring everything we love about winter in Maine. A fresh blanket of snow has covered the ground and the earth is still except for the smoke wafting from the chimney. The big red barn is adorned with a simple wreath and a vintage truck holds the perfect Christmas tree waiting to be decorated.
“Schooner in the Harbor”
The rugged nature of the people of Maine shines through in this painting by Richard Hasenfus. Cold, wind and waves will not stop this sailor from delivering a Christmas tree to the keepers of this coastal island lighthouse. The crew of the tall ship watches as the sailor makes the special delivery.
