Lobster Shack, Vinalhaven • 8×8 • oil on canvas • SOLD
We were on our way back from swimming in Lawson’s Quarry & as we turned left, this view awaited us. So quaint, so Maine. I loved visiting Vinalhaven!!!!
Browns Head Light, Vinalhaven • 8×8 • oil on canvas • $125
We explored some of Vinalhaven by bike last week which was so much fun! And let me tell you, it’s not a flat island … lots of rolling hills. 🙂 We pedaled down to the Perry Preserve overlooking North Haven & then over to the lighthouse where we were greeted by Jasper the cat, the official lighthouse keeper (see pic below). This lighthouse was so cool the way it sat halfway down a hill overlooking the rocky shores. Magic.
Island Reflections • 8×8 • oil on canvas • SOLD
On Monday I took the ferry from Rockland to Vinalhaven with a friend. The ride was so gorgeous … a painting at every turn. The tide was low & the rocks along the shore were so smooth & pretty in the morning light. And the water was still & the reflections of the pine trees were mesmerizing. Such a beautiful day trip!
Owl’s Head Light • 8×8 • oil on canvas • $125
I rode my bike in the Maine Lobster Ride on Sunday & we made a pit stop at this lighthouse. It was such a gorgeous day & the lighthouse was open for visits. I got to climb up to the actual light & enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the Harbor. It was breathtaking. Here’s a view of the lighthouse from the water … I love how it sits atop this rocky ledge. There is something extra special about this region of the Maine coast.
Munjoy Hill • 5×7 • oil on canvas • SOLD
I love taking the ferry & seeing my neighborhood from the water. It looks just as quaint from the bay as it does from the streets. And of course my favorite thing is the Portland Observatory poking up above all of the houses & trees. My hood has a special place in my heart!
The Head Light • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
We’ve took a friend over to the Portland Head Light the other day to explore. It was a picture perfect afternoon & Fort Williams was buzzing with all kinds of people. We started at the lighthouse & wandered the cliffside path to the rocky beach where we dipped our feet in the water. Such a beautiful place! Here’s the Head Light in all its’ glory. 🙂
View from the Winslow Homer Trail • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Rocks, ocean & islands as seen from the Winslow Homer Trail. Such a scenic walk along the edge of Prouts Neck–so Maine! I rode my bike out there yesterday & those views never ever get old!
Join me THIS SUNDAY for some art fun on the East End!
Summer Day from Chebeague • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
I had a great bike outing on Saturday to Chebeague Island with a friend. We rode our bikes from Portland to the ferry landing on Cousins Island, hopped on the ferry, tooled around the island for a bit & then caught a different ferry directly back to Portland. It was a gorgeous summer morning & the scenery was spectacular at every turn.
