Marsh with egrets- sold

Oil on panel, 8" x 10"
Back home again, at the Tillinghast Estate in Barrington RI. I don't always like painting marshes- not enough verticals!- but the egrets provided an interesting accent.

Cove with canoe- sold

Oil on panel, 8" x 10"
While on Deer Isle, we stopped one morning at this absolutely beautiful cove to paint. The coast of Maine- what can I say- it's breathtaking.
Email me for price.

House on a hill-sold

Oil on panel, 6" x 6"
Another painting from Stonington, looking uphill.

I found a great book when I was there, it's called "How Photography Can Make You A Better Painter" by Michael Weymouth. He is a professional photographer, designer and painter. His paintings are quite loose and beautiful, they don't look at all like they were done from photos, and he has some good advice on what to do and not do when using photos for reference. (I paid $30. for it at a touristy shop in Maine but it's $22.80 at Amazon.)

The dock of the yacht club at Sunset on Deer Isle- aptly named, it faces west, giving residents stunning views of the sun setting over the water each evening.

Painting on the coast of Maine-Sold

Oil on panel, 6" x 8"
I just got back from a stay at a lovely old house on the water in Deer Isle, Maine with some other painters. We had fantastic weather, sunny almost every day except for one morning when it rained, and you need an excuse to go shopping anyhow, don't you?

This was the first painting I did there, that cute little skiff providing the perfect accent.
