Pemaquid • 6×6 • oil on canvas • $95

The rocks at Pemaquid are sooooo cool.  I love the way they jut down to the crashing waves.  It’s fun to hop around on them & enjoy different views of the lighthouse too.  I’ve been meaning to paint this for awhile & today was the day.  🙂

Fruit and Pitcher

About 10 years ago I took an etching workshop & ever since, I have been obsessed with having a press in my studio.  Well, a year and a half ago I purchased one & it has been sitting in my studio just staring at me.  I’ve kind of been afraid to use it.  NO MORE … I have decided to play with it as much as I can for the month of March & beyond!

Yesterday I did a little still life drawing, placed the drawing under a 4×6 inch piece of plexiglass & then painted the still life on the plexi.  From here, I ran the painted plexi through the press onto some thick archival paper.  I did this 4 different times, creating 4 one of a kind pieces of the same subject matter.  This gave me a chance to see how it all worked.   I had a blast getting lost in something completely new.  I hope you like them!  You can purchase one individually for $35  or purchase them as a set for $115–ship for free. They will come sleeved on archival mat board.  Click on image for larger view.  Paper size is approx 7×9.

Alpaca Love

Alpaca Love • 5×5 • oil on canvas • $75

We visited the Northern Solstice Alpaca Farm in Unity, Maine, a couple of weeks ago & it was so fun!  We had an awesome guided tour of the farm & got to meet lots of adorable alpacas … it was love for me!  I can’t remember this particular one’s name, but she was a doll. They are all just soooooooo cute.

Plums are so beautiful.  I love all of the deep shades of purple.  We got a bag of them from my father-in-law’s grocery store the other day & I had to take a few up to the studio for a sitting.  🙂

February Sunrise

February Sunrise • 11×14 • oil on canvas • $195

I just can’t resist a good sunrise & I caught this beauty the other day.  Catching a sunrise while walking the dogs & then coming home to drink a green smoothie makes for the best possible start to the day!  Cheers to you & more sunshine!  Join my green smoothie challenge today:  31 quarts. 31 days.

Those Eyes

Those Eyes • 12×12 • oil on canvas • SOLD

Isn’t this look so expressive!?  Such a sweet pup.  I love painting animals–their eyes are so gentle & say so much.  And I think the pup staring up at me right now as I type is calling for a walk.  Gotta go!

Snow at Spring Point

Snow at Spring Point • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

We have had some lovely days that have melted some of our deep snow but I’m still day dreaming of falling snow.  It’s just so beautiful and it turns all of my favorite landmarks into peaceful, moody, magical scenes.  Here’s Spring Point for you!
