Bucks Haabah

This is from Bucks Harbor around my old house in Down East Maine..The area is desolate but very inspiring..This is probably around March last year, or like they say Maaash..

2 new paintings

Last week I destroyed 2 paintings..This week I tried to be patient..It is hard to paint while running after the kids, but I managed it!! The lines may be skewed because I took the pictures from a weird camera angle..The real paintings are more perspectively correct..

Watercolor tragedies

This weekend I spent a good amount of time on two paintings..Both were going great. However, right at the end, the final touches, both were destroyed..I did have some "distractions" which I attribute to this disaster!! My advise: if you are not in the mood or getting tired or distracted, leave the Watercolor alone!! Come back the next day with a fresh heart and finish the job!!

Cape Neddick Lighthouse

I am working on a few paintings for our new medical center. We'll be moving in November, but I have to submit them before the end of this month. This is the first one. I got the picture from the internet. The sky in the picture was completely blue, so I created the clouds. Also, the picture had a small red shed and a white picket fence. I eliminated them as I thought they would create a compositional imbalance. I am trying to convey a sense of early spring, where the winter clouds are still lurking around, but the sun bravely shines and tries to kill the chill in the air..
