Morning Glow

On this particular morning I was sleepy and dragging my feet to take the pups for a walk. As soon as I got outside I could see that the sky was starting to glow and the sunrise lover in me perked right up and took over. I grabbed the pups and headed for nearby Lane’s […]

Hunter’s Moon

I’ve been meaning to paint this gorgeous October moonrise I witnessed from Geary’s beach on Vinalhaven this Fall, and today was the day. I had gone for a late afternoon hike and pondered watching the moon come up from high atop a rocky ledge, but realized I might be in trouble getting down the rock […]

Cotton Ball Sunrise

We’ve got a sunrise sibling set for you this week. This was one of those mornings where everyone ran outside to watch the magic unfold. I had already been down on the Eastern Prom with the pups and was back home getting the critters their breakfast when I saw an insane pink glow over Munjoy […]

Spring Observatory

We painted a recent winter Observatory painting the other day as our sibling set and I was inspired to continue with the theme of the Observatory, but chose a different season and angle to paint. Here’s the Observatory as seen from Cumberland Ave–I love all of the architectural lines happening here, as well as the […]

Dusk on the Hill

This week’s sibling set is a recent view from my street corner looking towards the Portland Observatory–one of my favorite landmarks–at sunset. We both just love this silhouetted scene. Hope you do too! It’s just so moody.

Evening Glow

Here’s another painting of Fort Gorges at sunset from the rocky shore near the East End beach. This is a regular late afternoon walk for me in November–being near the water as day turns to night is always magical. I love how the shaded rocks at the shoreline ground us in the foreground while the […]


Here’s a little view of the city as seen from one of the piers. I love seeing the dock post, the boats, the lobster traps, the custom house and the city behind … all in one frame. So cool. For me, it’s the grit of the working waterfront that makes our city so special.

November Moon

We’re back for our Sibling series each weekend! We chose this lovely late autumn sunset scene from one of my November walks on the Eastern prom as the first sibling set of 2022. There are so many magical things happening at the same time here … a moonrise, autumn foliage still clinging on, the sunset […]
