It feels like we go from brown grass to green grass & blossoming trees overnight … it’s magic!  Spring has sprung & the colors of the early morning on the Eastern Prom looking fords Mackworth Island are delicious.  🙂

Spurwink Church on the Edge of Spring • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

Spring is here despite the crazy snowfall of the other day!  I love seeing everything come to life as we finally make the transition.  Here’s a painting of a sweet little church on route 77 in Cape Elizabeth …  I ride my bike by it quite often.  So pretty, so peaceful!  It looked like this a week or 2 ago … but thankfully the kelly green of spring has now set in.

Pedal

Pedal • linoleum block print • 6×4 printed on 8×6.25 paper • $50 each / 4 for $150

It was so fun to get back into some printmaking!  I had taken a LONG break from block printing because I hurt my shoulder by printing/burnishing by hand.  I now have a small press that made the job physically easier on me.  🙂   This is a reduction linoleum cut of a bike … which means I carved from 1 block only!  I printed the bright colors first & then cut away everything from the block except for what I wanted to remain black … and voila!  I have 3 of each color available.  Just let me know your color preference when you purchase.  All proceeds will go to the American Lung Association.  Free Shipping!  And of course they are signed & numbered.  🙂

Purchase 1 block print (specify color in order)

Purchase 4 block prints (1 of each color)

These little sail boats are sooooo cute!  I love seeing them out in the bay on any given afternoon … even chilly ones!  It almost makes me want to learn to sail.  🙂

Dark Sky Over Kettle Cove

Dark Sky Over Kettle Cove • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I went for a nice bike ride the other day.  Part of what I love about riding my bike is exploring special places.  As I pedaled down route 77 I decided to hang a right & visit Kettle Cove … and even thought the wind was biting, I was so glad I did.  The sky was so beautiful & so dramatic.  I love a moody sky, don’t you?
