Spurwink Marsh

11 x 14 Pastel on paper (framed to 16 x 20)

This is another for a show I am doing, fooling with the photo is allowing me to get somewhat of a good image to post. I am surprised to get anything photographing under lights at night. Thank goodness for photoshop and the like!

Garden View to Richmond Island

11 x 14 Pastel on paper

I just finished a wet paint auction I co-chaired this past weekend and there were over 300 people there. It was a huge success, with wonderful weather and motivated buyers, I even met my first fellow blogger in person. This was a view from the estate where the event was held. I photographed it and painted at home. I was asked to hang some paintings in a space at a local college, so exhausted but willingly I prepared some things in 2 days and this was one. Unfortunately, I had to frame everything quickly, and was trying to take photos at nite, so they are not the best quality or depiction of the work. I thought I better use them since I am low on material. I was satisfied with the pieces, these photos will have to do!

Off Vinalhaven

11 x14 Oil on canvas board

This is too fussy for me, not quite loose enough, but it was too late once I realized it. They are good lessons to learn, we learn from the good and the bad (more from the bad, I think!)

Turbat's Creek 2

11 x 14 Oil on canvas board

This is a plein air I did this week, and was moderately happy with the result, considering it has been a while. It was a gloriously warm and sunny day in Cape Porpoise, part of Kennebunkport, and it was great to just be out with the island view, boats, and few people exploring. I had a bad time with this photo though, and have to retake it again. Off for a couple days relaxing before a big wet paint auction I am part of!
