A practice piece following a Carol Marine workshop. I know the odd number of articles is supposed to work better, but I liked this for some reason.

Early Evening, Parsons Beach

10 x 10 Oil on canvas

I will have to reshoot this photo, I just realized there is a lot of glare. This is painted with limited pallet that I learned about in a Carol Marine workshop, that, by the way, was awesome! Take one if you can!

Kennebunk Beach

10 x 10 Oil on canvas

I have returned to this scene more than once, I think many artists have a view and area that for some reason they keep going back to over and over.

Southwest Harbor 2

10 x 10 Oil on canvas

The Acadia National Park area, has enough material to keep me busy forever, no wonder the Maine coast has been an attraction for so many famous artists and workshops over the years!

Southwest Harbor

11 x 14 Oil on canvas

I can't believe I finally photographed one recent painting, I have not been keeping up with my documenting. Too many things going on, some framing and delivering and still trying to keep up with summertime! This is from a visit to my son who is happily living and working (as a chef) in part of Mount Desert Island which makes up Acadia National Park, including, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Any way you look at it, it is a beautiful and special part of Maine and the country!

8 x 8 Oil on masonite

This is one of those paintings I said I would slowly move over from my oil blog to consolidate. An especially good time to do this since I have nothing to post, or I should say no photos of recent paintings to post. Summer is waning and we are all busy trying to fill each moment and it seems people are descending from all over for visits. We love it!
