I'm on a roll. Nothing like a gallery deadline to get work done. I painted this piece at the Yarmouth town landing with Pastel Painters of Maine a couple of weeks ago. Got it in the frame today and it's off to the Art District tomorrow. For more information on this piece go to the landscape portfolio page, link over there on the righthand sidebar.

I had a very productive week. I painted Wednesday at Scarborough Marsh with a group of painter friends from Facebook. We had artists from New Jersey, Texas and Maine. What fun. It was a grey overcast day but at least no rain. This painting is much larger than I have been doing recently, so I was happy to get it finished and framed so quickly. It's off to the Art District Gallery on Tuesday. More information on Rhythm of the Marsh 3 on the Marsh paintings portfolio page. Link over at the right.

It's just started to rain again. A good day for framing. I painted this small piece on location in February on a beautiful warm day. More like summer than it is today. More information on this painting on the pastel landscape page. Link over there on the righthand side bar.

Back to framing after a lovely weekend. This piece is another one for the upcoming "Marsh" show at the Art District. Of course - it's my favorite - Scarborough Marsh. The colors were hard to reproduce but I think I came pretty close here to the original. More information about the painting on the Marsh portfolio page.

Two framed pieces in one day. I'm on a roll. (I still want it to stop raining though). This is a real plein air piece. Finished 100% on location (Scarborough Marsh). I'm doing a series "Visions of the Marsh" for an upcoming "marsh" show. This is the first piece. More information on this on the Marsh paintings portfolio page.
It's pouring here today. In June we had 21 days of measurable rain. That doesn't count the foggy days. Now it's July 2 and it's still raining. A good day to get some framing done and remember when we could paint en plein air.
Come to think of it, it was raining the day I painted this at Pemaquid in May. No drought in Maine this year. More information on this painting on the Pemaquid portfolio page.
