MAINE INSPIRATION

I think that Maine has gotten in my blood.  I truly miss it and its only been a short while.  When I was in Southeast Harbor, Maine I took a boat ride and saw this lighthouse and was taken by it.  I worked in pastel trying to capture what I had seen that day.  Since I live in Florida it is a real treat to be able to work on a piece that has such extreme perspective.  I think that is what I miss most about not being in Maine and that is the scale and the drama of the landscape.  Enjoy!

Not sure I included this oil plein air painting that I did at the cemetery at Somesville, Maine in my previous post.  Not a typical place to paint but I couldn’t help it, it was just a very beautiful spot. I especially like the hydrangea’s that set off the tombstones in this painting.
