Shacks by Night • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Sometimes I just like to paint moody nighttime scenes. Today was one of those days, so I chose my favorite fishing shacks for a subject matter. I love the shacks in all kinds of weather & light.
Spring Point • 5×7 • etching • $45
My first etching on my press! :-). I actually worked on the copper plate of this image in the fall & chickened out of printing more than a couple of trial runs. Today I got my nerve up & printed a series of 8 of these. They are all printed from the same copper plate on archival paper, but they vary slighty as they are done by hand–the beauty of printmaking! The paper size is approximately 8×12. They will all be signed & numbered (but weren’t ready for that at the time I took the picture). I love Spring Point Light!
Spring at the Head Light • 4×6 • monoprint, oil on paper • $35
I just can’t get enough of the Head Light. 🙂 It doesn’t really matter at what angle you view it from, it”s just a striking Portland landmark. So much beauty at Fort Williams. Soon all of the snow will be gone & the grass will turn from brown to green & kite flyers will litter the fields–I am looking forward to that!
Comes sleeved on archival mat board/signed & numbered 1/1.
Paper size is approx 7×9.
The Portland Head Light • 8×8 • oil on canvas •SOLD
Spring is in the air, the days are longer & everything just looks brighter, which makes time outdoors even more special. I took a couple of walks around the Portland Head Light recently in the late afternoon & I was so inspired by the beauty & the light. Here’s a painting of the Head Light from one of the dog walking trails. I just love this place!
March Sunrise • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
It’s hard to wake up early after springing the clocks forward, but this morning I was up before dawn & had to wait for the pups to crawl out from under the covers. Once they made their way down the stairs, I bundled up & headed out to catch this gorgeous sunrise over the snowy Eastern Prom. Mother nature never disappoints!
The Morning After the Storm • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD
The blizzard hit hard yesterday! The snow came down 2-3 inches an hour for awhile … it was insane … but thankfully we woke up to pure sunshine today. I wasn’t able to go for an early morning walk with the pups because it meant climbing a 6 foot mountain of snow just to get to the street & they weren’t up for that. Instead I shoveled a path to the street, came in had breakfast & then we all headed out for a walk around the neighborhood. I love strolling the hood after a storm … it’s fun to walk in the snow covered streets & take in the brightness of it all. Here’s a view looking down O’Brion Street to Spring Point. Love this view!
Mean Girl • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95
This is Chickpea, the mean girl of our house. She is sassy & territorial, but also so sweet & cuddly. She follows us all over the house & cuddles next to me all night. She also keeps all of the other pets in check with her strong personality–chickpea takes no crap! 🙂
