On the Dock

This is a 4 x 6 watercolor done on the dock at the Maritime Museum in Sayville, LI. I liked the texture of the dock and the boat with the water and beach grasses.

Beside the Garden Gate

This 7 x 10 was started in plein air, but finished at home becuase it started to rain while I was painting. My sister and I stopped there to paint on our way home from dropping off paintings for a show. She did the waterlilies while I did the flowers and the gate.

Perkins Cove View

This is 7 x 10 and was painted on location in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, Maine. I love the stripes of the canopy of the restaurant and the sails of the boat docked there. A lovely spot!

Outside Seating

This 4 x 6 was done on the return ferry to Orient Point after my trip to Maine. People are so cooperative as models on the ferry...they almost always stay put.

Buoys Together

This 3 1/2 x 5 ink & watercolor was done while I was sitting at a table at a lobster pound where I had lunch in Maine. I loved the buoys all clustered together.

Flowers Galore

I painted this mini 4 x 6 watercolor of a restaurant window in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. I like the cascading plants and the weathered wood.

Coastal View

This 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 ink and watercolor was done by the beach in Ogunquit, Maine. I loved the green canopies on this inn by the water. It must be a lovely view from the balconies and decks.

Pemaquid Beach View

This watercolor is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 done on location at the beach in Pemaquid, Maine. Can you imagine being in one of those houses, with this kind of view every day? Paradise!

Ocean Point

This is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and was done on location near Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The fog was rolling in and out that morning, giving a misty look to the water in the distance. I love the coastal scenery up there...the rocks, water, and trees.

Rachel Carson Preserve

This 4 x 6 ink & watercolor was done on location at the Rachel Carson Preserve in Kennebunk, Maine. It was a pretty spot, but I ended up with lots of insect bites by the time I finished. Next time I'll have to remember the bug repellent.

Camden View

This is 7 x 10 painted in plein air in Camden, Maine. I've been there many times, but I usually paint the boats in the harbor. I love the church steeple and the rocks in the harbor too.

Beach Roses

I just came back from a trip to Maine where I did a lot of painting and some visiting. This is 4 x 6 with ink and watercolor done on site. It was done along Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine, on a walkway along the ocean. There are many beautiful spots along the way to paint. I love the beach roses against the ocean and the rocks.
