Acadia in Gouache

I went up to Acadia National Park for a few days last week with a friend and just soaked up the beauty and the trails all over Mount Desert Island. I squeezed in a lot of outdoor time in a short amount of time … from a sunset hike to an early morning paddle, a […]

Peony Love

I had such a good time in the peony garden at Gilsland Farm a couple of weeks ago that I just couldn’t resist some tiny peony paintings. Why not keep peonies blooming all year long. They are pure magic and smell sooooooo good. Ooooo, and so luscious in paint! These little paintings were done on […]

Summer Fun at the Shacks

We took a gorgeous walk in the Willard Beach area last weekend and of course I got inspired by the shacks. I can’t resist these beauties perched on the bluff. I love the way they sit so proud and exposed while keeping tabs on all of the happenings in the channel. So magical! This painting […]

Morning Marsh

We took the pups over to Pine Point last week for a gorgeous early morning beach walk (watch the video here). It was sunny when we left Portland and really foggy and a good 12 degrees cooler when we arrived at the beach. It was such a treat to stroll the misty shoreline at low […]

Fort Gorges Explored

Here are 4 Fort Gorges “tiny tuesday” paintings, inspired by a recent early morning paddleboard excursion on Casco Bay. I circled the fort and took in all of the cool angles and the mesmerizing reflections on the water, before going inside for some more amazing views. I hope you can feel the magic of my […]

Peony Joy

Now is the time to visit Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm for some peony cheer. The peonies are in full bloom and they are exquisite! The colors, the smell, the shapes … just gorgeous. I love peonies sooooo much and I got to spend my morning immersed in them with my plain air setup. So much […]

Poppies Alla Prima

I’ve been enjoying my neighborhood dog walks and all of the poppies that are in bloom right now. So gorgeous! Watching poppies dance in the breeze is so mesmerizing. I just can’t get enough of them. If you want to see my tiktok inspiration and process video, click here. I hope your spring is bursting […]

Morning Light

We’re back in Maine and it has taken me almost a week to find some sort of rhythm after a long, long drive home from South Carolina. I’m getting there though. 🙂 I even managed to wake up early enough to see some morning magic a few times this week–that can be difficult at this […]

Sand Dunes Moon

This is the last of the larger canvases I had to paint on while down in South Carolina and I couldn’t resist capturing that magical full moon I caught from the beach. Everything about that evening was dreamy … warm, breezy, clear and gorgeous! I rode my bike down to the beach with my beach […]

Painted Bunting

How could I not paint a painted bunting after seeing them for the first time?! They really look like flying painter’s palettes–they’re soooo gorgeous! We’ve got a little feeder up on the window and have really enjoyed watching a pair of cardinals come and go all spring, but then a couple of weeks ago, the […]
