October Sunrise

October Sunrise • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I love sunrises at any time of year, but there is something extra special about cold weather sunrises.  They are moodier, more dramatic.  And there certainly has been a shift in the air over the past week–I can feel that hint of winter, and I don’t mind, because I get to witness some spectacular views from the Eastern Prom.

Borestone Mountain from the Peregrine Trail

I was away last week at Borestone Mountain near Moosehead Lake and I had an incredible time.  The weather was exquisite as was the fall foliage.  Borestone is one of my favorite places on earth–it is simply magical.  And as a painter I am so drawn to the landscape.  Here’s a view of Borestone from the Peregrine Trail–gorgeous, huh?

We took a morning hike up to the summit of Borestone Mountain & then just sat & relaxed, taking in all of the spectacular views. Stunning!

Afternoon Light on Sunset Pond

Afternoon Light on Sunset Pond • 5×5 • oil on canvas  • SOLD

Believe it or not, I took a frigid plunge into this mountain pond with a friend.  It felt like we jumped into a bowl of ice cubes!  But as soon as we hopped out onto the sunny dock, it was pure sunshine bliss.  This was the view I had as I warmed & dried my body in the October sun.

Autumn Sunset from the Eastern Promenade

The light at this time of year is spectacular!  Here’s a soft & quiet view of Mackworth & the Brother Islands & all of the boats moored at the East End Beach as seen from the top of the Prom.  It’s my little piece of heaven.  So pretty!

September at Tenant’s Harbor

September at Tenant’s Harbor • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

We went on a little road trip to Tenant’s Harbor last week & it was so scenic & lovely.  The puffy clouds were floating over the coastal pine trees as the harbor boats shimmered in the cool water.  I love the coast of Maine–it’s so beautiful!  🙂
