artwork

The artwork of Constance J. Vogell of Westbrook was featured on the cover of the Hartford Courant's iTowns Shoreline Edition on Sunday, May 29, 2011. The image is based on a photograph of a cowboy who continues to herd cattle on his ranch at the age of 70. The original artwork is oil on canvas. " I submitted the painting via email more than a year ago, with little expectation that it would be chosen for the cover of the iTowns Section of the Sunday Courant. I was thrilled to see it in last Sunday's paper and have been pleased by the number of people who have contacted me to congratulate me about it, " said Vogell.
