Northern Chapter of the Plein air Painters of Maine - Weekly Tuesday outing
This past Tuesday the Northern Chapter of the Plein air Painters of Maine painted at Barret's Cove Beach. A beautiful park and lake just north of Camden, Maine. The scene reminded me of something the Hudson River School painters would have enjoyed.

I can't believe these guys were out there fishing, but then, they couldn't believe we were out there painting.
They weren't the only ones fishing though, a kingfisher was perched in those trees on the right. It would swoop down into the water and fly back to the trees. The bird caught more fish than the two guys did.

I managed to catch this view. After I finished the first one I thought I had time for a second painting before my fingers and the paint became too stiff to work. I didn't have to move very far. I just swung the easel to the right and started painting.

Peter, I've been following you since you were in the midwest - your move to Maine has obviously been the best thing for your art, you are getting better all the time. I am jealous! :-) Looking forward to retiring in Porland, ME... perhaps
Beautiful start, especially on the second painting. You certainly captured a lot of depth in the trees.
Thank you Amy - Hopefully your Maine dream will become reality.
Barbara - Thanks, I just saw your wonderful work on your blog -That second painting has a lot going for it. The trees alone have so much going on.
