Rings End Reflections/Peter Saverine (contributed image)
Darien native and local artist, Peter Saverine, paints scenes inspired by his life along coastal Fairfield County. Sometimes it’s a Wednesday evening ride by the beach when the youth sailing regatta is winding up before sunset. Other times it’s looking out at Greens Ledge Lighthouse from a Roton Point vantage or walking by Darien’s Rings End bridge. His color blending and simple subject matter has been called, “Relaxing, happy, and nostalgic of summer days gone past.”

More so, he is recognized for the smaller scale of his work, its affordability and being suitable for many rooms in a home or office. His popular “miniature paintings” on easels measure just 3 x 3 inches and retail for $20.

When asked about the popularity of his work, Saverine says, “I paint for fun. I paint from memory. I tell people some of my paintings can be ‘anywhere you want them to be’. Unlike many artists, I prefer to match my artwork to the audience and make it affordable. I don’t feel there is a minimum price for art if the buyer is inspired by the piece.”

Saverine will be showing and selling his latest painting collection as well as autographed copies of his children’s book, Jenny’s Pennies—A Nantucket Tradition” this Saturday and Sunday at the Fairfield Kiwanis Club’s 26th Annual Juried Arts and Crafts Show at the historic town green on Old Post Road in Fairfield from 10 to 4:30. Admission is free, rain or shine.
