Munjoy Hill

20160719_135801

Munjoy Hill • 5×7 • oil on canvas • $95

I love taking the ferry & seeing my neighborhood from the water.  It looks just as quaint from the bay as it does from the streets.  And of course my favorite thing is the Portland Observatory poking up above all of the houses & trees.  My hood has a special place in my heart!

The Head Light

The Head Light • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75

We’ve took a friend over to the Portland Head Light the other day to explore.  It was a picture perfect afternoon & Fort Williams was buzzing with all kinds of people.  We started at the lighthouse & wandered the cliffside path to the rocky beach where we dipped our feet in the water.  Such a beautiful place!  Here’s the Head Light in all its’ glory.  :-)

Summer Day from Chebeague  • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75

I had a great bike outing on Saturday to Chebeague Island with a friend.  We rode our bikes from Portland to the ferry landing on Cousins Island, hopped on the ferry, tooled around the island for a bit & then caught a different ferry directly back to Portland.  It was a gorgeous summer morning & the scenery was spectacular at every turn.

Prouts Neck Vista

20160627_123922

Prouts Neck Vista • 5×7 • oil on canvas • $95

I went for a little painting excursion this morning along the Winslow Homer trail in Prouts Neck.  The smell of the wild roses was delicious, as was the breeze … and the scenery wasn’t bad either!  I perched myself on a warm rock & painted the view towards Scarborough Beach.  Everywhere you look is a painting waiting to happen.  So beautiful!

It’s lupine season & I saw soooooo many of them on the 3rd day of the Trek Across Maine.  They were growing wild all along the roads & I just love them … have I mentioned that purple is my favorite color.  :-)

Strawberry Moon Over Casco Bay

20160622_121104

Strawberry Moon Over Casco Bay • 5×7 • oil on canvas • SOLD

We walked down to Fort Allen on the Eastern Prom the other night to watch the moon come up over the bay.  It was a blustery night, the sky above was crystal clear, but the sky at the horizon was hazy.  We watched & waited & suddenly a faint pink ball appeared.  So soft, so pretty.  It grew brighter as it climbed.  It’s always so nice to take time out & enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us.  Here’s June’s Strawberry Moon with Fort Gorges & couple of the Casco Bay Islands for you.

Carrabasett River • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

I rode my bike in the Trek Across Maine over the weekend & the scenery was spectacular!  We followed the Carrabasett River for awhile on the second day & got to stop & enjoy the view for a few minutes at a small bridge.  Isn’t it stunning?
