Sunset Over the Point

I was out on my paddleboard last night watching the sunset and I caught the most beautiful sunset reflection in the clouds above Holiday Point. So pretty! Heading out on my paddleboard after dinner as the sunsets is one of my favorite things to do while I’m here on Lake Champlain. It’s always a treat. […]

Camel’s Hump

My favorite Green Mountain view is always Camel’s Hump. It’s so recognizable and I just love the shape of it and the layers of hills that sit beneath it–oh, and I love the name. Once upon a time my partner and I hiked up there in the fall with our basset hound and camped out […]

Palette Sky Series

It’s tiny tuesday! I’ve played with a palette knife before (but not in a REALLY long time) so I decided I would give it another shot this week for tiny tuesday. I used reference photos from 3 of my favorite places–a sunset rain cloud from Lake Champlain in VT, a spectacular Eastern Prom sunrise in […]

City Bay Sunrise

It’s time for some family camp painting for me and my brother. 🙂 Since the age if 2 & 3, we have been spending some summertime on the shores of Lake Champlain in Northern Vermont. Driving onto the Champlain Islands always makes me feel like I’m coming home and I know the same holds true […]

Marsh Paddle

I went for a couple of paddles on the Spurwink River in Cape Elizabeth this week and it was so pretty. It was actually the first time I had ever taken my standup paddleboard to the marsh and now I’m wondering what I was waiting for! Floating with the current of the tides while watching […]

Beach Roses at Acadia

We decided to keep our Acadia theme running this week for our Sibling Saturday/Sunday post. Here we have a spectacular summer morning from the shores of Mount Desert Island, somewhere along the park loop road. Everything about this scene screams Maine summer … the rocky shore, the pine trees, the islands and the fragrant beach […]

Summer Morning / Summer Night

For tiny tuesday this week I decided to play around with a couple of panoramic gouache paintings that celebrate summer. This week I witnessed many magical moments on the Maine coast, so it was hard to narrow my selection down … but I decided to capture a sunrise from the Eastern Prom and a nighttime […]

Summer Sunset

We took the ferry out to Peaks Island last week and caught a stunning sunset that I couldn’t resist capturing in paint. The monotone sky and water with the bright pink sun and reflection reminded me of a Monet painting. And this beautiful sailboat was headed right into the reflection–so pretty! I know this unusual […]
