Libby Manchester Gilpatric paints Contemporary American Realism in colorful oil paintings of coastal and rural New England - landscapes, urban studies, interiors, still life, figures and critters. Many win awards. Most wind up in private collections. They are ready for you to add to your own collection or give as the perfect wedding or house gift.
