Southern Maine

"Maine Coast", 5"x7", Oil on Board
I haven't been doing a lot of painting this summer because I've had so many other things going on. I painted this quick, little landscape of a scene I found down near Cape Elizabeth. Over the past couple of weeks, I've also made some trips to the coast to view and sketch boats and dinghies so I may be working on paintings of them in the future. A few weeks ago, I was also fortunate enough to get down to Boothbay Harbor to view Kevin Beer's work at Gleason Fine Art gallery. It was a pretty impressive show of Maine landscapes especially the paintings of Monhegan Island. I was hoping for a chance to go to Monhegan before the summer is over.
