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.

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

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! 🙂

Lobster Boat Dock • 24×24 • oil on canvas • $625.00 • purchase this painting
Cruising by Munjoy Hill • 24×36 • oil on canvas • $775 • purchase link

I went for a long afternoon walk a couple of weeks ago down on the Portland waterfront. I meandered down and around all of the piers looking for some inspiration. It was freezing out, but the afternoon light was so warm bouncing off of the water and the boats. There were so many colors and so many things to take in–seagulls, docks, ropes, boats, reflections, buildings.

I couldn’t resist painting the iconic Casco Bay Ferry boats that were lined up in the sunlight with the 2 sea taxis docked in the foreground. And the other one I couldn’t say no to was the docked lobster boat with all of the buoys, barrels, buckets and ropes. So cool! I also added another Munjoy Hill painting into this waterfront collection–you know how I love my neighborhood, and seeing it from the ferry boat is always a treat!

Critter Collection

Sun Seekers • 16×16 • oil on canvas

BFFs on the Beach at Sunset • 16×16 • oil on canvas
Cat Nap • 16×16 • oil on canvas

I get to paint so many adorable critters as commissions and I don’t often make time to paint my own precious fur babies. Well, this week I am sharing my own little pet portrait collection that I did at the beginning of the summer of Zoe, Calvin (he moved on 2 yrs ago), Fonzi (black cat) & Chickpea. It’s so much fun to have them hanging on our walls which is why I thought I’d take this time to remind you that pet portraits make very special gifts & the holidays are sneaking up, so place your order SOON & be a holiday HERO! 🙂
