Fisher loved to paint "big" canvases, usually local Maine scenes in later years, done in a thickly painted, darkly outlined modernist style that had a distinct 1930's style about them. Margaret Kilburn, his partner, created fanciful, sparkling works in glass, baked in a kiln, that depicted birds, flowers, small human figures that were much in demand locally.

They were a warm, delightful couple, who lived for their art, and who loved sharing their knowledge of art. Margaret Kilburn, died in 1984.
