About Francois Lamothe
The new profile picture has a story. A commission of Harpoon Willy's dockside restaurant in Portsmouth, the buyer wanted to return to a time 10+ years ago when St. John's Episcopal church on the hill was still visible. Temporal artistic license.
Back to the biography....In 1974, solidifying a lifelong interest in drawing, Francois took an oil painting course. You might say he took time for a career, family and life in general for 27 years (hey, we all have times like that.) In 2001, he renewed his interest in painting .

He is a member of the Plein Air Painters of Maine....
