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 roses in the foreground. Can’t you smell them? We used the same reference photo but each cropped in on it in a different way and painted on different size wood panels.
