City Bay Sunrise

It’s time for some family camp painting for me and my brother. 🙂 Since the age if 2 & 3, we have been spending some summertime on the shores of Lake Champlain in Northern Vermont. Driving onto the Champlain Islands always makes me feel like I’m coming home and I know the same holds true […]

Marsh Paddle

I went for a couple of paddles on the Spurwink River in Cape Elizabeth this week and it was so pretty. It was actually the first time I had ever taken my standup paddleboard to the marsh and now I’m wondering what I was waiting for! Floating with the current of the tides while watching […]

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. Everything about this scene screams Maine summer … the rocky shore, the pine trees, the islands and the fragrant beach […]

This week I witnessed many magical moments on the Maine coast, so it was hard to narrow my selection down … but I decided to capture a sunrise from the Eastern Prom and a nighttime […]

Summer Sunset

We took the ferry out to Peaks Island last week and caught a stunning sunset that I couldn’t resist capturing in paint. The monotone sky and water with the bright pink sun and reflection reminded me of a Monet painting. And this beautiful sailboat was headed right into the reflection–so pretty! I know this unusual […]

Rain Cloud at the Beach

We’ve had so many floating rain clouds and fast moving storms this month, and I love it! The skies have been incredible and to see the warm summer rain hit the water and pavement is so soothing. This particular rain cloud missed us, but I sure had fun admiring it from the shore.

Clouds at Kettle Cove

It’s so fun to see how my brother and I can look at the same thing and see it in such a different light.  This week my we decided to paint a Kettle Cove view for our sibling set.  It doesn’t matter how many times we head down Kettle Cove Road, getting that view of […]

Black-eyed Susans

A sweet friend gave us a beautiful bouquet of black-eyed susans from the farmers’ market last week and I just couldn’t resist painting these little beauties. They are just soooo happy! 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 […]
