Pastel Painters of Maine

Pastel Painters of Maine holiday show opens Friday Nov 7 with a reception for the artists at 5PM. Rivertree Center for the Arts, Kennebunkport, Maine. See events page for details. Don't miss this great show.

Time Out

I'm going to be traveling for the next couple of weeks. I'll be in NY where my husband will be receiving an award for his book "If By Sea" (see the blog link by scrolling on the righthand side bar). Then we're headed to San Francisco for awhile where I'll be doing some new plein air work and some more still life. Should be fun and hopefully some new and interesting blogs will appear.

In the meantime I have work at 4 events in the coming weeks so be sure to visit any of the shows I've listed on the events page and check over at Fine Art America (link above) and see what's happening there.

Red Pears

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5 image, 11 x14 framed, original $95.00, giclee print $22.00 at FAA

I'll stay on the still life theme for a couple of days while I get these over onto the FAA gallery. This original pastel is presented in the 11x14 mat as usual. Shipping in the US is included in the price. You can also purchase a print of this painting over at the FAA site (see the link at the top of this page). I've checked the quality of their giclee process and the prints I've received are excellent. I have several friends using their service and they are happy with it as well. I'll be offering more prints over there as I have time to get them posted. If you have a favorite that you would like a print of, let me know and I'll post it over there.

Pomegranate, Pear and Lime

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5, Giclee print $22.00 at FAA

It's been a very busy week one way or another. I won't get to work on last week's plein air paintings until sometime later. In the meantime I thought I'd post a few of my still life pieces. You can see how this looks in the mat by scrolling down the right side of the blog. You can purchase a print of this painting at Fine Art America. See the link above.

Afternoon Glow

Pastel on handmade paper, 5x5, 11x14 matted, $95.00

I'm back from my painting trip. I got a lot of work done but it's not ready to post yet. I just posted this painting on FAA so I thought I'd put it here as well. It's one of my favorite pieces and it's still available. Matted in the usual white 11x14 mat and the price includes shipping within the US. If you have a chance click on the FAA link above, it is easier to see all the pieces that are available than it is on this blog.

Marsh Mist II

Pastel on Wallis, 5x5, 11x14 framed, $95.00

I'm off on a painting trip to the midcoast of Maine. The folliage should be at its peak. I'm hoping to have lots of new pieces to post when I get back. Marsh Mist was painted at Sheepscot Marsh on my last trip to the midcoast which was about a month ago. The colors then were just turning gold. This piece is matted to 11x14 (see how it looks by scolling on the right hand side bar). Price includes shipping.
