Sunrise Dance

I walked out to this little island for sunrise the other day and I sat on the rocks and watched the cloudy horizon turn a warm lavender. It was a little chilly, so we (me & the put) headed back before the sun came up over the top of the clouds. As I turned the […]

Island Sunrise Magic

I looked out the window yesterday morning and saw that the clouds were aligned for a gorgeous sunrise, so I hurried out of the house and headed to a nearby bluff to watch the early morning magic unfold.  Wow.  What a sky!  And thaving the silhouette of the pine covered islands and lobster boats in […]

Trail Reward

Walking through the mossy woods, stepping over tree roots and logs and listening to the birds chatter is always a treat. Hopping on a trail instantly calms the mind and amplifies the senses, doesn’t it? I just love the smell of the pines and the softness of the earth under my feet. And I especially […]

Island Fog

I had a peaceful early morning walk in the fog a couple of days ago. The trail I was on dropped me at some granite ledges where the water blended with the sky and each layer of the shore line looked further and further away, while the sounds of the birds and fog horn felt […]

Sunset & Moonrise

About the other night … We watched the sunset fade below the horizon from the warmth of a slab of pink granite.  The colors in the sky and water were so soft and dreamy while the silhouette of the rocks in the foreground were so bold.  There was a stillness in the air and so much beauty around […]

Day Break at Fish Point

I’ve been enjoying some lovely walks before the sun comes up! The quiet and the colors of the sky at day break are so special. I walked out on Fish Point the other morning and soaked up the pastel palette that was in the sky and reflecting into the water. Such a pretty way to […]

Cliff House Beach

A mid-day swim at Cliff House Beach in the heat of the Summer is the best. This little beach is so scenic with the view from the top of the cliff looking down to the cove and and Ram Island Ledge Lighthouse off in the distance. I always love a visit to this spot and […]

Lake Champlain Sunset

I’m up in North Hero, Vermont with some of my family which meant my brother and I got to sit side by side and do a sibling painting yesterday. It was so fun to paint next to him! This paintings inspired by a spectacular sunset boat ride my brother took us for the other night. […]

Mount Desert Shore

We decided to get lost in a little coastal magic for the week’s sibling set. Looking down the Mount Desert Island shoreline is so dreamy … the pink granite, the pine trees, the cliffs, the mountains. No place better to escape to in summer.

Harbor Cheer

Painting this large harbor piece was so much fun! I love the magic of a working waterfront … the boats, the buoys, the traps, the shacks, watching the water rise and fall with the tides. I love ALL of it. I just can’t get enough of Carver’s Harbor in Vinalhaven.
