Summer Shacks

Summer Shacks • oil on canvas • $135 • purchase link

I was looking through my photos for a specific photo of my pooch, Zoe, and stumbled across an image of the fishing shacks at Willard Beach that called to me for a painting, so here we have it. I love these iconic shacks and getting lost in the warmth of a summer day felt pretty good too.

Pets & Pottery

Huckleberry 6×6 oil on canvas SOLD

At my potters wheel 🙂

I can’t believe January is coming to a close. Time certainly does fly when you are having fun … and aside from a week long nasty cold, I have been having fun! I have been busy with pet portraits and pottery and not much else. Yep, you heard me right–I said pottery. 🙂 I am taking a beginning pottery class at Portland Pottery and am having a blast. It’s fun to learn something new and to play with the clay. It’s so hard and requires a lot of focus, but I love how present I am with my time in the pottery studio and how meditative the process is. Actually, that’s what I love about making art in general. Here’s a pic of some recent throwing on the potters wheel and a couple of pet portraits too. Sending love & smiles to you! 🙂

Spring Point Summer

6×6 • oil on canvas • $95 • purchase link

I guess this week is lighthouse week. 🙂 I was scrolling through some pics and got stuck on a few summer ones. This view of Spring Point from Willard Beach is just awesome. I have painted this scene before an a larger scale, but couldn’t resist the cheer and warmth it offered as I looked out the window at falling snow.

Portland Headlight in Winter 1 & 2

Portland Head Light I • 8×8 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Portland Head Light II • 8×8 • oil on canvas • $135 • This painting is ON HOLD for A.G.

I haven’t painted the Head Light in awhile and it just called to me, so here are a couple of paintings from a winter walk. It really is such a beautiful and iconic lighthouse at any time of year. And the grounds at Fort William are so fun to stroll!

Dusk on the Hill

8×8 • oil on canvas • SOLD

The afternoons have been so dark, but those minutes after the sun sets are stunning on the Hill. I love this look down Congress Street towards town with the warm glow of the coffee shop and the sweet silhouette of Portland Observatory.

HAPPY 2020, friends! And thank you for a wonderful 2019!

Warm Winter Glow

6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

Happy New Year, Friends! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with your family & friends and that this new year is your most colorful yet!

Here’s a little painting that captures the tranquility of a still afternoon on Casco Bay as seen from the Eastern Prom–no wind, just cold air, warm light and beauty. We’re so lucky to get to witness these magical scenes in Portland. Cheer to many more in 2020!

I did these 4 paintings last week to bring to Art on the Hill and they all found new homes. Painting the Maine coast fills my heart with so much peace and joy–it’s so gorgeous–I just can’t help myself. These scenes are inspired from my visits to Vinalhaven.

I will be doing an Art Open House next week & will have some new pieces there too. Stay tuned for details! 🙂

Let the festivities begin! Come visit me in the gymnasium–booth 17–at Art on the Hill this weekend! I’m looking forward to a fun weekend on the East End surrounded by amazing Maine makers.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
