Both of these paintings have been accepted into the Barn Gallery Annual Juried Show in Ogunquit. The Barn Gallery has such a wonderful and long history of supporting artists. My college art professor was the well known Ogunquit painter John Laurent, son of the Ogunquit sculptor Robert Laurent. John used to take us as students to their galleries in the waning days of the early colony. All of the artists of the historic Ogunquit art colony had strong connections to and some were founders of the Barn Gallery. I'm very honored to have been once again selected for their annual juried show.

Pemaquid 7

Oil on gallery wrap canvas, 5 x 5
About time I posted another painting. I'm still working on posting the Pemaquid paintings from the retreat weekend. This is one I did the first day. I was lucky to go up again yesterday but just for a photo op, no painting. Then a delicious lobster at Shaw's. Great way to spend a summer afternoon. Here's to summer!!! You can see more Pemaquid paintings on my website:

Pemaquid 5

Oil on cradled birch panel, 6 x 6 x 1.5
I spent the (long) weekend painting with my Pastel Painter friends at our annual Pemaquid Retreat. We had a fabulous time despite a lot of inclement weather. Something close to 100 wonderful paintings were created by 21 artists. This is the first of the paintings I did on Friday. The weather was cooperating for the most part that day although the fog kept rolling in and out. Right here it was sunny and warm. I hope you can see in this painting how much I love this place, especially when I can paint there with so many great friends.
