I did this fun little study of Chickens from life at a farm in Port Clyde, M Maine. This was painted during a fun outing with a group of painters staying nearby at the Nanatuck House. The farmer raises these chickens as show birds and they were a beautiful group. It was great fun to paint with the group, too!

It has been a long time since I posted. I’ve been busy on my house,  and just started painting again this summer. I know you have all been impatiently waiting:)!

This is the view down towards the St. Georges river in South Thomaston, Maine, just a short distance from my house. It’s a great place to paint and the store is handy for a cold drink or sandwich.sold-button

I’ve had this pump sprayer for years. It’s designed to spray fixative or varnish on paintings in a “green” fashion. No atmosphere harming propellants produced! The “Alizarin” in the tile refers to a specific color, Alizarin Red.

This work is unframed, but it  is mounted on a board with a slot in the back which allows you to display it without a frame.

This was painted during The Plein Air Painters of Maine annual Oil Painters of America national paint-out this summer.  It was sunny in the morning, but then some fog rolled in.

About 45 artists showed up including a few from the Plein Air Painters of the Southeast, who were renting a house locally. I ran into a painter from my dad’s town in North Carolina, Rich Nelson, a fine portraitist and oil painter from North Carolina.  He invited me to do some work for his gallery for the Tryon International Equestrian Center, which I will work on early next year.

As usual, the fall colors up in Maine were spectacular. I was so busy, I think this was the only study I did this year. I live on the coast, but the land slowly rises to some low hills just a mile or two inland behind my house, which is where I did this.

He’s Back! And it’s that time of year again. Up here in the long winters of Maine, it’s hard not to seek warmth and distraction by imbibing a little. Of course my monkeys problem is that he’s so teeny. A couple sips and he’s dancing around the room, a couple more and he’s slurring, and a couple more after that, well, that’s all she wrote. And apparently he likes his Manhattans’ with an orange, which is just wrong!

I rescued these Chinese lantern pods from a yard refuse pile just around the corner from my house. I had knocked several times on the owners door seeking permission to pick some from their garden, but never caught them at home. But once a few were in the refuse pile, I just snatched them and hung them to dry for a few days.

This is the Rockland Harbor Breakwater, which is a 4,300-foot (1,300 m) breakwater which protects Rockland Harbor,  and was completed in 1902. Just at the end you can see the old lighthouse. I was sitting down near the beginning, enjoying the piles of old granite. It’s a lovely walk out there to the end on a warm summer day, and is often a busy tourist attraction.

Here is a small painting I did near home, at the town dock just a mile from my house. This boat, called “Sweet Chariot” is based on the island of Vinalhaven, about 12 miles offshore from my house. The Captain said it was originally from the west coast, and had been built for former Japanese-American internees after WW2, to provide them with work . Interesting that it had made its way all the way to Maine!

Available for $100, which includes shipping.buy-button
