February Full Moonrise on Casco Bay


February Full Moonrise on Casco Bay • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I got to witness the full moon rising over Casco Bay the other night.  MAGICAL!  It was so cold out, but so beautiful.  We had a fresh blanket of snow and the moonlight only intensified the gorgeous winter glow on the Eastern Prom & beyond.  If winter weren’t so pretty, it’d be hard to take … for me, the beauty is worth it!


MORE Snow on the Hill

MORE Snow on the Hill • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

We have had no shortage of snow this winter, that’s for sure, & I couldn’t resist another Congress Street view on the Observatory in snowflakes.  I love my hood.  <3  And as much as I dislike shoveling, I love a good snow storm!  How about you?

FIRST FRIDAY ARTWALK tomorrow, March 1st, from 5-8pm.

 Come visit me in the studio at 81 Congress St.

Bowl of Fruit & Studio Play Time

Fruit Bowl • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I had the best afternoon in the studio with my niece Hanna & girls!  We painted, giggled, jumped on the trampoline & had a good time.  Here’s my painting of fruit & Hanna’s paintings of a garden with mountains behind & a sunshine painting that she gifted to us.  🙂

Hanna: “These paintings took a lot of time & effort & patience. I am very happy with them!”

February Sunrise Glow

February Sunrise Glow • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I woke up the other morning & could see a spectacular glow in the sky.  I grabbed my pup & ran out the door to see what I would find.  This is the amazing sight that was waiting for me on the Eastern Prom.  WOW!  I watched the sun move up from the horizon & in the clouds–what a dramatic sky!

SNOW! on Munjoy Hill

SNOW! on Munjoy Hill • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

The Blizzard hasn’t even officially begun & we are already in a winter wonderland.  It’s magical out!  I love my neighborhood any day of the year, but there is something so special about it during a snow storm.  I couldn’t resist painting the view from right out in front of my house …Congress St & the Portland Observatory.

Bailey Pup

Bailey Pup • 8×8 • oil on canvas • SOLD

It is such a gift for me to get to spend time painting amazing critters that bless our lives.  I just love the expression on this pup, Bailey.  And I have a feeling Bailey was good at getting what he wanted.  How could anyone resist those eyes?
