I went for a long afternoon walk a couple of weeks ago down on the Portland waterfront. I meandered down and around all of the piers looking for some inspiration. It was freezing out, but the afternoon light was so warm bouncing off of the water and the boats. There were so many colors and so many things to take in–seagulls, docks, ropes, boats, reflections, buildings.

I couldn’t resist painting the iconic Casco Bay Ferry boats that were lined up in the sunlight with the 2 sea taxis docked in the foreground. And the other one I couldn’t say no to was the docked lobster boat with all of the buoys, barrels, buckets and ropes. So cool! I also added another Munjoy Hill painting into this waterfront collection–you know how I love my neighborhood, and seeing it from the ferry boat is always a treat!

I get to paint so many adorable critters as commissions and I don’t often make time to paint my own precious fur babies. Well, this week I am sharing my own little pet portrait collection that I did at the beginning of the summer of Zoe, Calvin (he moved on 2 yrs ago), Fonzi (black cat) & Chickpea. It’s so much fun to have them hanging on our walls which is why I thought I’d take this time to remind you that pet portraits make very special gifts & the holidays are sneaking up, so place your order SOON & be a holiday HERO! 🙂

Apples to Apples

Pink Ladies • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Apple Trio • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I love apples … their color, their shape and especially their taste! And as the crisp autumn air rolls in, I love them in an apple pie smoothie, a raw apple cobbler, a cooked apple crisp or some homemade apple sauce. SO GOOD! And of course, they can’t be beat eaten on their own or with your favorite nut butter. Apples are nature’s candy AND nature’s fast food. Who needs Mickey Ds or BK? 🙂 I hope you are getting your fill of Autumn apples too!
