Maine Wildflowers

Another painting from Maine- eventually I will be caught up, but I haven't taken the time to update this blog in a few weeks so I am behind.

I painted this looking east toward the ocean about mid-afternoon. I loved the cool tones of the shadows and the violet wildflowers.

Dip Nets

This is a restaurant where we painted in Port Clyde when it was raining. I loved the colorful lobster buoys and the yellow reflections from the overhang. My friend painted facing the other direction.

More Paintings from Maine

Here are two more paintings from my trip to Maine. These were painted from similar locations at slightly different times of day. One was a relatively calm day and the other one was painted on a day when there was a small craft advisory.

I love the way the sky and water can make a scene completely different from one day to the next.

Port Clyde, Maine

I spent last week in Maine with eight other artists. We rented a house and plein air painted during the day and drank wine in the evening. I had never been to Maine before and the rugged beauty of the coast was a joy to paint. We stayed in the St. George area, in the tiny village of Port Clyde.

I am sharing a painting of some row boats I did while standing on the deck of the local coffee shop, Squid Ink Coffee.

Iris and Buster

Iris is the granddaughter of a friend and she took a nice photograph of her when she visited her recently. I loved the red boots and baggy sweatshirt. I added the little Westie for interest.
