Working with watercolor as a means of expression was one of her greatest joys. Whenever possible, Hayton liked to paint “en plein air.” The visual beauty and uniqueness of New England was always stimulating to her. Being able to depict the color, texture, mood, shapes and lighting effects while at the same time representing a special place for others to view and enjoy made Hayton happy.

Hayton worked for over 45 years as an art teacher of both children and adults. She exhibited her work in Massachusetts, Maine and Florida and won many awards for her watercolors. She was a member of the Framingham Artists’ Guild, the Northshore Art Association, the Island Watercolor Society in Leesburg, Florida and the Bridgton Art Guild.

Hayton will be honored at the Gallery’s reception from 5-7 p.m. Friday, June 6. Her family will donate all proceeds from the sale of her work to the Bridgton Art Guild. Gallery 302 is at 112 Main Street. For more information, call 207-647-2787 or visit
