Carver’s Harbor Sunset

20161027_120736

Carver’s Harbor Sunset • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75

I was headed over to Lane’s Island to watch the full moon rise & this was the unexpected treat I got from the bridge.  I love the silhouette of the shores & the boats in the harbor … the afterglow of the sunset was just lovely!  And the moonrise wasn’t bad either.  :-)

Fog at the Basin, Vinalhaven

Fog at the Basin, Vinalhaven – 5×5 – oil on canvas – $75

I got to witness some moody, misty weather on the island which was so cool! I rode my bike down to Granite Island Preserve on Tuesday afternoon to walk in the woods & check out the shoreline of the Basin.  I had walked a bunch of trails at this point, but here the earth below my feet was soft like pillows & the smell of pine was delicious. It was amazing! And when I arrived at the first lookout I was greeted by what sounded like barking dogs. After some searching, I realized there were several seals perched on a ledge talking at me. They were so cute! They splashed a little and made some more noise and then sat quietly observing.  What an awesome experience.  I just love fog and mist on the Maine coast!

Reflections, Huber Preserve, Vinalhaven

20161018_100506-1

Reflections, Huber Preserve, Vinalhaven – 5×5 – oil on canvas – SOLD

I took a bike tour of the island yesterday and decided to stop at the Huber Preserve. The walk was a feast for my senses. The smell of the pine trees was intoxicating and when I reached the  shoreline,  the sounds of the fish jumping and the ducks swimming and talking was constant & mesmerizing. Wow! I was immersed in nature …  such a tranquil spot with gorgeous autumn views.

Lane’s Island, Vinalhaven – diptych

Lane’s Island, Vinalhaven – diptych

5x5s – oil on canvas – SOLD

I arrived on Vinalhaven yesterday afternoon for a getaway with bike & paints.  I dropped off my bag & hopped on my bicycle and went for a ride to Lane’s Island Preserve. What a gorgeous spot.  I walked a narrow path through the woods that opened onto a field that offered this view. Simply breathtaking. It was warm when I arrived, but after my walk around the Preserve the sky darkened and the winds kept whipping. By the time I finished painting,  a hot shower was in order–I was chilled to the bone. But so worth it!
