I just completed the plein air workshop that I gave on Desert Island in Maine.  The weather was absolutely perfect, the locations gorgeous, the participants a delight and of course the lobster to die for.  No matter where you look there is a painting waiting to be painted.

I did this little watercolor demo piece in Bar Harbor at the Shore Path.  An absolutely lovely spot with a rocky shore, great combination of green foliage and a beautiful view of the ocean.  
This was a little oil study I did in Bass Harbor of a path that led to the harbor shore.  Loved the little planter with the red flowers in it and the dark shade that framed it.

My watercolor interpretation of this wonderful house. This house was used in the film “The Perfect Storm”.

Below are pictures of some of the participants (sorry I didn’t get everyones photo) and more views of the island. Enjoy.


Please join me in Southwest Harbor, Maine for a week long workshop from August 24-30, 2014. Nothing can compare to painting along the rugged coast of Maine and the Acadia National Park.  Learn how to add more drama to your paintings through step-by-step demonstrations, while developing a greater understanding of the principles of composition and color mixing.  If you need additional information or would like to register please contact:
