Pretty Little View, Ogunquit

Pretty Little View, Ogunquit • 5×7 • oil on canvas • $95

We took a little road trip South on Friday to visit the Ogunquit Museum of American Art & to just explore.  I adore this little museum–the grounds are exquisite, the sculpture garden just awesome & the museum itself so sweet & full of Maine Art History.  If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it.  After walking through the gardens I decided I should take some time & do a painting.  I found this pretty little view through a canopy of plants & trees looking out to the rocky shore & I painted.  Definitely the highlight of my day.  :-) Enjoy!

Nothing beats starting the day with a sunrise … except for maybe a sunrise & a morning yoga class.  :-)  Pure magic.  The glow, the warmth, the hope for the new day.  Cheers to you!

Harvest Moon Over Casco Bay • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

The moon has been phenomenal over the past week.  WOW!  We walked down to the Eastern Prom on Friday to watch the full moon come up over the Casco Bay Islands & it was so mesmerizing.  The Harvest Moon came up so quickly & turned brighter & brighter as it hung out over Little Diamond Island before carrying on high above us.  Such a gorgeous night!

September Sunrise

September Sunrise • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

I love September for so many reasons.  One reason is because the sun rises a little bit later now & I often catch it while out walking the pups.  Here’s a sunrise from earlier this week–there wasn’t a cloud in the sky & the horizon was just stunning.  May you too catch a few sunrises this month–I can’t think of a better start to the day.

I booked myself a little inspirational getaway to Vinalhaven in October & I can’t wait.  I’ll take my paints & my bike with me & not much else!  Here’s a painting of Carvers Harbor … the harbor that the ferry brings you into when you arrive on Vinalhaven.  So scenic, so Maine.

We took a sunset trip to the Portland Head Light the other night & it was just gorgeous … the light, the sky, the water.  Love this place & it’s where my brother & sister-in-law got married just over 10 years ago.  So special.
