Artist @ the Library

Artwork by local resident, Florence Como, will be on display through September. Since her retirement from teaching in the Lincoln Public Schools, Florence has pursued her love of painting. Travel in Europe, especially Italy, has provided Florence with a wide variety of subject matter for her paintings. In addition to European scenes, Florence enjoys painting local scenes and gets inspiration from the beauty of Cape Cod and Cape Ann.  She paints in a realistic style and enjoys painting a wide variety of subject matter including landscapes, seascapes, florals, urban scenes and people.
