The Water • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
I love listening the the crash of the surf & feeling the ocean breeze on my face–it’s sooooo relaxing & just happy. This is one of the paintings I intended to do while sitting on a rock at Fort Williams, but since my paint brushes turned up missing I had to settle for memory & a snapshot & complete it in my studio. Some days just go like that.
Cliff Walk at the Head Light • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
I headed over to Fort Williams today to do some plain air painting with my pups in tow. I found a gorgeous spot along the cliff walk & unloaded all of my goodies, put on my painting smock & then realized that my paintbrushes had fallen out of my bag. NO! 🙁 The pups & I retraced my steps but saw no sign of my 3 favorite brushes, so we just enjoyed the sound of the crashing surf & the gorgeous views & I did some studio painting when I got home.
Mackworth Island II • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Here’s another painting from my little excursion to Mackworth Island, Such a treasure of a place only steps from home. I sat on the little pier with the sun beating against my back to paint this one. Heavenly!
Pedal by the Marsh • 10×10 • oil on canvas • SOLD
I went for a gorgeous bike ride yesterday throughout Portland, South Portland, Scarborough & Cape Elizabeth … I saw so many gorgeous things, and had to stop to admire this view in particular. The marsh is just so beautiful!
I Love Lucy • 8×8 • oil on canvas • SOLD
She looks so happy & eager to please. I just want to give her a biscuit & some belly rubs, don’t you? WOOF!
Happy Birthday to you, Alice! xoxo Bruce & Lucy
Afternoon on Mackworth I • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
I got out for a little plein air painting today on Mackworth Island & it was amazing! The trails & shorelines are so shady & cool on a warm day & the views are so pretty. I always love a walk around this sweet island. I even took off my sneaks & enjoyed a foot soak in the refreshing salt water. Heavenly!
