    This lobster pound in Boothbay across from Knickercane Island is a holding area that keeps the lobsters contained. The tide cleans and refreshes the holding area. I think nearby restaurants buy from the pound. It is a an interesting subject to paint.

    This sunken garden in Wiscasset is a treasure. It was planted inside a foundation from the 1800's. It is a lovely peaceful quiet haven in the middle of the town. It was a challenge to get all the elements in and still have a simplicity. I needed to get an interesting distance and still have a focal point. I used a palette knife in a few places. It was a really fun painting to do.

    Maine is full of cottages hugging her cliffs. It is a challenge to try to capture that feeling of isolation and independence that makes people seek out these places to live. It was a cold and windy day in November when I painted this. I would not want to be in one of those cottages during this weather.

    We, The Plein Air Painters of Maine, were invited to paint at the Gardens of a beautiful home in Trevett, Maine. They were astonishing. There were paths of every color and type of flower imaginable. There was even a raked Japanese garden with bonsai trees in it. It was a hot day but there was a gentle breeze coming off the river beside the gardens. Pure heaven on earth for a plein air painter.

    Painting in fog is challenging. The foreground is clear and the background keeps appearing and disappearing. When I started this painting at Ocean Point I could not even see the lobster boat. By the time I was almost finished the boat was beginning to appear so I quickly painted it in before the fog changed again. I so like painting in fog!!!

    I probably have painted this little island over a hundred times and I am sure others have too. I never tire of it because it is different every time I paint it. The light changes it, the fog comes in, and even the weather changes it. The trees have changed so much over the years. It is like seeing it anew each time.

    Wind, Ice, snow and even the unfortunate accident can often lead to power outages.There is nothing quite like pulling into your driveway pushing your remote button and discovering your Garage Door won't open. For most homes with Garage Doors this creates an often frustrating and inconvenient situation. For homes equipped with the LiftMaster 8550 pushing that button offers you peace of mind knowing you still have access when the power goes out thanks to the battery back up feature.

    Spruce Point is another great place to paint...especially in the early morning. The quiet silence when I painted this was palpable. There wasn't even a gull in the sky or a boat in sight. The ocean was so calm and serene. I love this kind of morning. The white rocks were just shining.... as if they were happy too.

    Incoming tides are fascinating! They can be thunderous with crashing waves, they can be skipping along briskly, they can be gently lapping against the shore or they can be turbulent like the one in my painting. How lucky I am to live in such an amazing place.

    Liberty Farm is a great place to paint! There is so much to paint there. The hens check out my backpack on the ground. The ducks scatter around from place to place in groups and the geese give me "looks". The old barn is so interesting. When I am finished painting I go into the barn and buy eggs. Hopefully the whole experience goes into the painting and the viewer shares it.

    On any given day you will see a plein air painter on the rocks at Ocean Point. It is a favourite place of artists from all over the world. It was such fun to paint this painting of a fellow artist, who is an avid painter, while he was standing precariously on the rocks. His signature is his red white and blue umbrella.
