Evening Glow at Falmouth Town Landing

Evening Glow at Falmouth Town Landing • 8×8 • oil on canvas • $115

We had a gorgeous boat outing with friends last week … a ride around Casco Bay, a picnic on Chebeague Island, a walk on the beach, a quick & chilly dip in the ocean, cuddles with the cutest Frenchie & gorgeous views everywhere.  As we headed off the dock, I couldn’t resist this pretty view of the dories & beyond.

September Glow

September Glow • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75

The light at this time of year is so special.  Here’s a scene of my “back yard” view from the Eastern Prom in the late afternoon last month.  Magic.  Thank goodness for the beauty of Mother Nature to help ground us in times of sorrow & tragedy.  Not a day goes by that I don’t feel grateful for the place I call home.

The Basin, Vinalhaven

The Basin, Vinalhaven • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

I have been busy catching up on commission work & haven’t had a chance to do a little daily painting until now.  :-). Here’s a Vinalhaven scene.  We took our paddle boards into the Basin for some seal watching & swimming off the rocks which was incredible.  We saw lots of adorable seals & the swimming off the huge granite rocks was exhilarating!  Talk about some refreshing water. 🙂

Starboard Rock Vista

Starboard Rock Vista – 5×5 – oil on canvas – $75

I discovered this trail on Vinalhaven last fall & couldn’t wait to go back with my partner. Such a rewarding vista. I sat on the bench at the summit of Starboard Rock to paint this one. Pinch me. Purchase this painting

Headed to the Basin

Headed to the Basin – 5×5 – oil on canvas – $75

We had a magical swim in the Basin under the solar eclipse on Monday. It was phenomenal! The top of the water was warm & the bottom cold and refreshing.  We explored a little by swimming from one big granite rock to another & sunned  ourselves on the warm rocks at each stop. This was the view of the path to the water. So much beauty!

Lane’s Island Preserve

Lane’s Island Preserve – 5×5 – oil on canvas – SOLD 

I sat on a big rock in the morning sun and painted this view from Lane’s Island Preserve yesterday. What a fabulous way to start the day. I could hear the waves rolling in below me, the lobster boats strolling by and lots of birds chirping. Such a spectacular place!

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the Darkness .  –Desmond Tutu

Sunrises always make me feel hopeful & now that the sun is rising at a more reasonable hour (5:50am this morning) I will be seeking them out.
