The Basin, Vinalhaven

The Basin, Vinalhaven • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

I have been busy catching up on commission work & haven’t had a chance to do a little daily painting until now.  :-). Here’s a Vinalhaven scene.  We took our paddle boards into the Basin for some seal watching & swimming off the rocks which was incredible.  We saw lots of adorable seals & the swimming off the huge granite rocks was exhilarating!  Talk about some refreshing water. 🙂

Starboard Rock Vista

Starboard Rock Vista – 5×5 – oil on canvas – $75

I discovered this trail on Vinalhaven last fall & couldn’t wait to go back with my partner. Such a rewarding vista. I sat on the bench at the summit of Starboard Rock to paint this one. Pinch me. Purchase this painting

Headed to the Basin

Headed to the Basin – 5×5 – oil on canvas – $75

We had a magical swim in the Basin under the solar eclipse on Monday. It was phenomenal! The top of the water was warm & the bottom cold and refreshing.  We explored a little by swimming from one big granite rock to another & sunned  ourselves on the warm rocks at each stop. This was the view of the path to the water. So much beauty!

Lane’s Island Preserve

Lane’s Island Preserve – 5×5 – oil on canvas – SOLD 

I sat on a big rock in the morning sun and painted this view from Lane’s Island Preserve yesterday. What a fabulous way to start the day. I could hear the waves rolling in below me, the lobster boats strolling by and lots of birds chirping. Such a spectacular place!

Sunrises always make me feel hopeful & now that the sun is rising at a more reasonable hour (5:50am this morning) I will be seeking them out.

Rolling Fog

Rolling Fog • 8×8 • oil on canvas • $115

I went out on a painting excursion last week & the fog was so dense along the coast, I really couldn’t see anything!  A blank canvas pretty much summed up my views.  I got to the Spurwink River & decided to stop & paint as I could make out the marsh & the river.  I didn’t like the painting I started that day, but I couldn’t shake the moody scene from my head, so I reworked that foggy marsh feeling in the studio … Voila!
