Beach Roses at Acadia

We decided to keep our Acadia theme running this week for our Sibling Saturday/Sunday post. Here we have a spectacular summer morning from the shores of Mount Desert Island, somewhere along the park loop road.

Summer Morning / Summer Night

They are painted on small 4×4 inch wood panels with 1 inch deep edges. I loved painting on this surface because it felt so […]

After much chit chat, we decided it would be fun to play together and paint from […]
