I have not posted for a while, but I have a good excuse for at least one week. I have been on vacation ( painting/business trip for tax purposes) in Maine for a week. Maine is an incredible place to paint/visit/eat/relax... We spent the week along the coast, just past Bar Harbor.
But up here along the northern coast of Maine there is an added complication. Tides. The Bay of Fundy is not too far away and they have the highest tide changes in the world. ( 55 feet). We didn't have that much change in the tide but it is noticeable during a painting session.
( look at the photo above) Here I am at the beginning. Do you see any rocks in the water?
One great thing about painting in Maine is that you can literally turn in any direction or walk a few feet and sit down and paint an entirely different subject.
This isn't 20 feet from the first photo.
Or do you call it mist? I call it a challenge. Especially when it changes color and thickness each minute or two. Mother Nature and I played this game of "now you see the coast and now you don't."
Oh, before I forget. Another reason this was a business trip. I just got into another Gallery... right here in Maine! So I better get painting!
Great paintings! I love Maine - we moved here about 3 years ago and I wouldn't live anywhere else.
Beautiful little studies, Peter. Congrats on the new gallery! Glad to see your landscapes again.
Beautiful work! Glad to see things are taking off for you with the galleries.
