We are going back to Borestone Mountain this Fall & I can’t wait! As I finished up some work in my studio this afternoon, I started to daydream about this magical place, and the daydreaming turned to escaping there in the form of a painting. This is a late afternoon scene from Sunset Pond looking back at the mountain & the gorgeous sky above. Cheers to daydreaming & getting lost in a painting!
Warm Day on Mackworth Island • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Today was a beautiful & deceiving day … it was one of those days that looked so nice and warm, but it was downright chilly out with a wild wind! I’ll take it though–I love sunny days! I sat in my studio this afternoon & thought about those warmer days ahead & decided to paint this scene from Mackworth Island. It kind of reminds me of the French Mediterranean coast that some of my favorite painters like Renoir & Cezanne painted. I’m not sure if it’s the landscape or the palette that makes me think of them. What do you think?
Sunrise at the Head Light • oil on canvas • 22×28 • SOLD
This is a painting I did for consideration of a wine bottle label. While this painting wasn’t chosen for the label, the one that they did pick has a very distant Portland Head Light in it. Check it out here. 🙂 Anyways, I love this painting for its moodiness and dramatic feel. 🙂
