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.
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.
The weekend got away from me … a long bike ride, visiting with friends and celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary in the family. Phew! I did manage to carve out a little time to paint with my brother yesterday, just not enough time to post. Here we go …
Summer sunsets over water are magic … especially when enjoyed from a paddle board! Here’s a special one for our sibling set with a bold sky and gorgeous lake reflections. Ahhhh! I don’t know about you, but I always sleep better after catching a summer sunset.
We’re back with a sibling set after a rather long break. Life just got in the way for a bit. We’re hoping to keep this rolling as we have so much fun doing these. Here’s a sunrise from earlier this week on the Eastern Prom that I shared with Michael and we made it happen. Summer Sunrises in Maine are early, so I don’t catch them that often, but they’re always a treat. And seeing our interpretations of the same scene makes my heart sing. Enjoy.
I’m back in Maine … and I’m getting to enjoy a second strawberry season. What a treat! I went and picked berries with a couple of girlfriends last week and of course, I couldn’t resist painting them. Fresh picked strawberries truly are nature’s candy. So good! I hope you got to enjoy some too. 🙂
Full moons and new moons are my favorite on Fripp because I love watching the extra high tides come in around me–it’s such a magical feeling to feel as though you are floating in the marsh. And then to catch moonrises and sunsets over the full marsh and beach is icing on the cake. Here’s the gorgeous full moon rising through the dunes and sea grass. I love how the white sand dunes almost looks like snow. So cool!
Here’s a new Lowcountry video with some snippets of the magic. If you’ve had your eye on a Lowcountry painting, now is the time to grab it as I’m headed back North next week.
High tide on the marsh is my favorite! And when it coincides with sunrise or sunset, it’s the best! Here’s a look across Marsh Dunes Road during one of the magical moments. Such a treat to witness this lowcountry magic!
A little painting of my hood back home in Maine at sunset. As many of you know, the Portland Observatory is my favorite Portland landmark the way it stands tall overlooking the city, the bay and beyond.
I love popping into Low Country Cider Co. & Superior Coffee not only because I love their oat milk lattes, but I also because I love their patio! Just look at these orange umbrellas and blue tables. So inviting. Come on, let’s enjoy a cup of joe!
Painting the Lowcountry is so different from painting the Maine coast. The shores are so different–it’s all sand and marsh down here and mostly rocky ledges and pine trees at home. Today I decided to let myself get lost in the familiar which is the rugged island coastline. So fun. I love the colors of the shore, the seaweed, water and beyond. So inviting!
