Pemaquid Lighthouse

This is one of my favorite places to visit in Maine. Climbing down on the rocks wasn't so easy carrying my backpack, painting chair, and stool. But the views are worth it. Due to the heat and humidity, this is only 4 x 6. I'll have to go back in cooler weather to paint there again.

Boothbay Cove

This is another watercolor and ink from my trip to Maine. This is 8 x 10. Luckily I had a nice shady spot to paint from, since it was very hot & humid that day.

Pemaquid Beach

While I was visiting Maine we spent a day at Pemaquid Beach, which is quite different from the beaches here in NY. This was part of the view if you were standing near the water, facing the beach. This is 4 x 6.

This is a watercolor and ink done while in Maine. In fact, this tree is right outside my sister's back door. It is 4 x 6.

Ocean Point Beach

I spent last week in Maine visiting and painting with my two sisters. This is 5 x 7 and was done in plein air at Ocean Point near Boothbay Harbor, Maine. It is a beautiful spot, despite the excessive heat we had while we were there.

Log by the Dunes

4 x 6 ink and watercolor done on location the other day. I think every part of the dunes is just waiting to be sketched or painted.

At the End of the Dock

This was done the same morning as "Across the Marsh" below. I decided to try one more since it hadn't started raining (but was windy and humid). This is 8 x 10 done in watercolors alone. I had just enough time to finish this, walk back to my car and throw everything in the trunk, hit the ladies' room, and get into my car before the predicted rain started. I timed it perfectly!

Across the Marsh

I did this 4 x 6 on Sunday on the grounds of the Maritime Museum in Sayville. The skies were overcast (artistic license was used here) so I decided I'd better do something small so I would have time to finish it before it rained. It was windy and damp but I kept on painting.

Jasper National Park

Pretty in Pink

This is ATC sized (2.5 x 3.5) done for the WDE event on WetCanvas. It was fun to do this tiny and see how much color I could get into the petals. The only drawback to the tiny size was painting the stamens which didn't show well as light as they should have been. I had to darken them
