This was a challenging painting. I painted it in the parking lot of Bigelow Lab in East Boothbay looking onto the trees by the river.. Halfway through the painting it started to rain so I had to get into my Jeep to finish it. I really like the way it really feels like Maine

I took five new fairy dresses up to Brambles in Belfast yesterday, because they’ve been selling like crazy. To those of you who read the last post and specifically went up there last week to buy them–thank you!
There's still time to place orders for lobster meat for Christmas and New Years for local pickup! Great for appetizers or sides, and perfect as a special gift to bring back to friends and family from away. All of our lobster meat is picked in house and fresh to order. We choose only the best lobsters for our fresh picked claw, knuckle, and tail meat.
My miniature fairy dresses are the ideal gift for the Yule or Christmas tree. Hanging on custom whimsical hangers, they belong in evergreen trees, as a special ornament or as an angel tree topper.
Here are each of the four new fairy dresses I just brought to Brambles in Belfast yesterday. These one-of-a-kind handmade dresses are fashioned from all natural forest and plant materials and each comes with the a Celtic back story.
I have painted at this spot for many years in all kinds of weather and I am still finding new ways to paint it. Plein Air painting certainly helps you to really see all the subtle nuances in nature. Trying to capture those nuances is the challenge!

This lovely garden was planted and now lovingly tended by a wonderful couple who live right by the ocean near where I live. All summer long it is a treat for the eye and painter. As one plant fades another takes its place so there is never a time when there are no flowers blooming. It is a gift they share with the world. I was fortunate to paint it in May when the tulips were flowering. I will be going back for sure.

Hendricks Head is another favourite place to paint. The tide creates lovely patterns of seaweed and the colours are so varied and unusual. It was cold this day in May so I painted fast and came home to "tweak" the painting in my studio. Ahh the joys of plein air painting.

The Shipbuilders Park in East Boothbay has an array of different boats. I thought this would be a good challenge to paint…and it was! I had no idea what kind of boat it was but I just painted the shapes and this is what I came up with. The boat looked like it was important so I called Washburn and Doughty (the shipbuilders) and asked them what this unusual vessel was. (I hope I got my facts right!) They said it was a 1954 Landing Craft for the US Army. A LCU #1590 Spotsylvania.
This was painted on a beautiful day at Boothbay Shores after lots of rain. Lots of rain brings lots of overgrowth. It is challenging and fun to try to portray it without getting "fussy". I really enjoyed painting this. Plein Air painting at its best.
This one-of-a-kind miniature art piece is a fairy dress, made from dried grass and cattail fluff, and adorned with white lichen representing "The Witch Hare" a type of Irish fairy. This dress is protected by a distressed pine box (3 in. x 4 in) on a bed of dark green moss with two mushrooms poking through.
These miniature dresses all hail back to the roaring twenties using books and short stories from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (a marked up book I found in a thrift store and have saved from the trash bin).
I have only one of each available: black and white.
Boothbay Harbor is a busy place in the summer. There were lots of boats in the harbor. The comings and goings were fun to watch, and it was fun to paint all the "stuff" on the dock. Plein air painting affords such a wealth of experiences!
Leading up to our first art show on July 28 at Alder & Vine for the Belfast, ME Artwalk, (5:30 -8 pm) we will be showcasing several years’ work of miniature fairy dresses made from natural materials in our woods.
Shown here is The Faery Maiden, a birch and bramble “Wee Folk” fairy dress that was one of my first creations.
