Untitled (?) – Baby Seal by Maine Artist Carolyn Folsom, 1980

Art - Baby Seal 2 Art - Baby Seal

I wasn’t able to find much about Carolyn Folsom via a quick internet search, although she appears to be well-known in the Bangor area.

Here’s what little I did find: she spent her childhood in Northern Maine in the 1930s and 1940s, she apparently lived in Millinocket at the end of WW II, she taught art, and she was/is married to Clyde Folsom, a storyteller.

This pencil drawing of a baby seal is just lovely and totally sweet, and is signed by the artist and dated 1980. The matting is well done, as is the frame, although the latter has suffered some minor dings over the decades.

Like some other items being posted, this was in storage after our bricks and mortar shop closed, and is just now being displayed again.

Condition:  Excellent although the frame has some minor dings.

Dimensions: about 26″W x 22.5″H

Price:  $75.00.  Maine State Sales Tax of 5.5% applies
