Morning, Scarborough Marsh

Pastel on Wallis, image 8x8, 14x14 framed, $300

I took a few days off from painting after the show. This marsh painting I did a little while ago, it actually has a yellow sky which my camera fails to pick up. I'll try another photo of painting if you are interested in it. It is framed as shown on the righthand side bar and it's quite lovely. Shipping within the US is included. Email me if you are interested.

Stroudwater Marsh

Pastel on Wallis, 5.5x5.5, matted to 11x14 $95.00

Stroudwater is a section of Portland that goes back to Colonial times and it is a beautiful reminder of our Portland history. The marsh there is particularly lovely. It is where, in earliest times, the trees for masts were loaded onto ships to be carried to the shipyards. The Tate House, which is open to the public, was the home of the mast agent. This interpretation of the marsh is 51/2 x 51/2, and is matted to 11x14. See the sidebar to the right to see what that looks like. Price includes shipping in the US.

Low Tide

Pastel on Wallis, 6x12 image, framed 12x18, Sold

I'm really into the marshes this week. What's new?? I painted at Scarborough Marsh this morning but I wanted to post this piece that I just framed from a paintout at Stroudwater Marsh earlier in the spring. It was freezing that morning and then it started to rain, but I did manage to get this piece done. The image is 6x12 and is framed in a gold plein air frame. You can see what the frame looks like on the right sidebar. Price includes shipping within the US.

Scarborough Marsh #3

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5 image, matted to 11x14, Sold

I'm on a roll. Here is another 5x5 that I painted last Monday on the Scarborough Marsh paintout. It was pretty foggy at this point in time, but not as foggy as it was earlier in the morning. The fog sometimes makes the colors pretty vivid, esp when the sun begins to break through. This piece is matted to a white 11x14 mat for which it is easy to find a frame. You can see what it looks like when it is matted on the right hand sidebar. Shipping includes postage within the US.

Pemaquid II

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5, matted to 11x14, Sold

I finally got a Pemaquid piece matted. This painting was done on our weekend trip to Pemaquid with Pastel Painters of Maine. 22 of us gathered there about a month ago. We had a great time but the weather was just awful for a bunch of plein air painters. This one I did before the rain set in but it was a pretty overcast day. My camera has distorted the yellow here, the yellow in the foreground is not as orange as it appears in this photo.

Welcome to the home page of my blog. This is where I post new work as well as updates on my artistic life.

You will find a complete portfolio of my work on my website: Kathleen Daughan Fine Art where paintings can also be purchased. Smaller paintings and jewelry are in my Etsy shop:

I also have a brick and mortar gallery/studio in Nashua, N.H. in the Picker Building. Please email me for more information.
