From the 1960s to 2001, Alice Steer Wilson painted en plein air, capturing Cape May's seascapes, Victorian cottages, inns and landmarks in a variety of media including oil, charcoal and watercolor. Beautifully compiled by her daughter, Janice Wilson Stridick, Light, Particularly offers more than 200 stunning images, as well as stories, poems and essays illuminating Alice Steer Wilson’s art.

In 1974 Alice Steer Wilson wrote a statement on the back of a painting that was discovered behind a frame in 2001: 

"In case my paintings are ever “discovered” after I’m dead, here is my statement of what I was trying to do. I loved the appearance of things, light particularly, and I tried to copy it as accurately as I could, leaving out what was boring and exaggerating what I liked. Why I loved certain sites better than others, I never knew, and neither do the people who are explaining it to you now.” - Alice Steer Wilson, 1974

Janice Wilson Stridick, 9.2" x 11.3"
