Millers Island

'Millers Island'
6 X 8 Oil on archival canvas board

I just got back from a trip to Maine. Talk about a little piece of heaven...it was wonderful to get up each morning, make a cup of coffee, then go sit out on the dock and watch the sun rise...all to the haunting calls of the loons. This was the only plein air I got done on the trip (did manage a few watercolor sketches for future work). I was having so much fun kayaking through the Serpentine with my daughter, splashing around in the water and painting with my grandkids, fishing and taking boat rides with the whole family. We managed to get to Camden, Freeport and Acadia...have so many pictures to go through, and the possibilities for future paintings are endless.
Now it's back to the real world...

Thanks, Mitzi. I have to admit I have been daydreaming about that place ever since I came home...I just loved it!

Thanks, Dean. It was definitely one of the best, most relaxing vacations I have had in years.
