Nature’s Fast Food

Nature’s Fast Food • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95 • Purchase Link

I love fruit and I love still life paintings, so I am revisiting an older 6×6 fruit painting that makes me happy. I hope it makes you happy too! Fruit is so colorful, vibrant and sweet–who needs candy when you can have fresh fruit. Actually, I take that back, I do need chocolate. 🙂 What is your favorite fruit? I honestly love ALL fruit … especially whatever is in season. 🙂 Today I have had strawberries and a banana, and boy, did they hit the spot.

Eastern Cemetery Blossoms

Eastern Cemetery Blossoms • 5×7 • oil on canvas • $95 • Purchase link

As I walked down Congress Street on Saturday, the sun and pink of the reaching branches in the Eastern Cemetery filled my field of vision and heart with such joy. The cherry blossom trees are in bloom and they are beautiful. I knew I would have to paint them. So here you have a springtime painting of sun, pink, hope and love.

My daily neighborhood walks have become a favorite pastime–my one constant in our ever-changing world. I hope you are able to get outside for some walks each day too. They definitely help me feel sane. Be well, friends. xoxo Hugs!

Nightime Sparkle & Island Night

Nighttime Sparkle • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD
Island Night • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

Just sitting here playing with color in these two nighttime paintings of the Maine Coast. These paintings spell out tranquility to me … the color palette is a favorite of mine and the quiet of nighttime on the water is so calming. These paintings look so much better in person, but you get the idea. :-). I hope you are staying cozy and dry on this dreary day. I am thinking about you & sending much love your way. xox

Chasing Rainbows

Chasing Rainbows • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75 • Purchase Link

I do love chasing rainbows–the dramatic skies, the light, the colors–I love it all. Rainbows are magical to see over Casco Bay, so whenever I see rain and sun I head for the Eastern Prom to look for a colorful arc in the sky and a pot of gold. I have yet to find a pot of gold, but really, the rainbow over the water is reward enough. Be well. xoxox

The Hill in Pastel

The Hill in Pastel • 6×6 • oil on canvas • SOLD

We walked into a tiny 1 bedroom apartment that had a bathtub in the living room and saw a large painting I had done of Munjoy Hill from the water hanging above the bed. The painting was light, bright and and slightly abstract with only pastel colors. I recognized the painting as my own, but was surprised to find it in this space. I think we were looking at real estate in my dream, and someone was trapped or hiding in the bathroom. The painting looked out of place in such tight quarters and was so unexpected–it stuck with me upon waking up this morning, and I couldn’t help but paint a tiny version of it. I love it. The airiness of this little piece feels so good in a time where many of us feel trapped. May your dreams be an outlet for theses challenging time. Thinking of you all and sending much love and light your way. xoxo

Happy Shacks

Happy Shacks • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75 • Purchase Link

There is something so comforting about seeing my favorite landmarks holding strong during these uncertain times. A recent visit to Willard Beach let me pause and admire Fort Gorges, Spring Point, the Shacks, and the Portland Head Light. It is so grounding, in a world which is changing so much each day, to find some beautiful constants. Be well, friends. xox

Settling In for the Night

Settling in for the Night • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75 • Purchase Link

Even the lobster boats and dories seemed to get tucked in for the night after a warm summer’s day. The water is still, the sky is aglow and the hustle of the harbor has stopped–such a beautiful and tranquil time of day. This painting is a scene from Vinalhaven. May it bring you peace. Be well, friends. xoxo

Happy Summer Boats

Happy Summer Boats • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75 • Purchase link

Just painting things that make me happy right now and these little boats in a still harbor at low tide do the job. A little Maine coast magic for you. I hope you are getting fresh air, feeling the sun on your face from time to time and getting lost in the little things that bring you joy right. Much love and light from Portland, Maine. xoxo

Willard Beach Walk

Willard Beach Walk • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95 • purchase link

We are so fortunate to still have access to some of our beaches at this time–it does wonders for the soul to walk on the sand and hear the water rolling in. Here’s a painting from our walk on Willard the other day. That beach offers some of the best views … Spring Point, the fishing shacks, Fort Gorges, the Head Light, the islands, the ships coming in. For this painting I focused on the view towards Spring Point Light with Fort Gorges right behind. And I love all of the moorings bobbing around in the foreground. Hope you are cozy and safe today, friends. Be well. xox
