Pemaquid of course

The Islands of John's Bay, watercolor, 6x6, 35.00

Yesterday, Dec 1, was the first day of the December Facebook painting challenge. The challenge is to make 20 paintings or sketches before the holidays. Since I've been traveling so much I haven't held a paintbrush for over 2 months. I really needed something to get me back into the studio. Yesterday was an incredibly beautiful and warm day for Maine in December. I had planned to paint in the studio but could not pass up the chance to go to my favorite plein air spot, Pemaquid Point. This is a 6x6 watercolor. Even though it was a sunny day I still needed to work from the car. Watercolor is the best medium under those circumstances. This painting is available on my website along with several other watercolor paintings.  Click on the portfolio link on the left and then choose the watercolor link. These small paintings make great holiday gifts.

Green Pears, pastel, 6x12 in gold frame, 350.00

It's time for the holiday art receptions. Saturday, Dec 3 is the date for the Holiday Reception at Yarmouth Frame Shop and Gallery. 30 gallery artists will be showing small works for holiday giving. "Green Pears" is one of my contributions. 10% of all original art sales at the gallery will go to Toys for Tots. Stop by and meet many of the artists on Saturday from 4-7. If you can't make it on Saturday, stop by anytime during December. The gallery will be open 7 days a week. The Yarmouth Frame Shop and Gallery is located at 720 Rt One in Yarmouth. It's a perfect place to get your framing done as well. For information on more art shows this month check out the events page on my website:
