Sandy Crabtree’s paintings have been featured on Pine Tree Society’s holiday cards 12 times. She is a noted children’s book illustrator and a longtime Bath resident who taught at Morse High School for nearly 30 years.
“Pine Tree Society’s art collection is wonderful and I love being a part of it,” she said. “You never know how it strikes people’s hearts. The holiday cards evoke feelings of nostalgia for Maine as a place where you grew up or visited.”
Her painting Winter Sunlight captures one of Maine’s most photographed lighthouses and its keeper’s cottage on Maine’s rocky coast. A crisp winter day serves as the backdrop for a snow-covered landscape of twinkling lights with a festive balsam wreath adorning the cottage.
Sandy loves lighthouses. She also loves tree houses.
“The tree house at Pine Tree Camp is what first inspired me to want to support the organization. I think it’s a wonderful idea.”
Accessible access to the outdoors has never been more important. One hundred percent of proceeds from annual holiday card sales support Pine Tree Society’s programs and help Maine people with disabilities lead richer, more socially connected lives.
