Quick painting

This is a quickie on hot press paper..This paper is very dangerous!!!If you're a watercolorist, you'll know what I mean..

West Quoddy

I did this very quickly today..Not sure if I like it


This another painting of the blueberry barrens between Cherryfield and Harrington..I really cannot describe those barrens in words...When you're upthere, you feel like you're in a desert of red..The earth meets the sky and there is nothing else around except occasionally a lonely tree..If you try to paint over there, you have to hide in your car as the wind would blow your easel away, as I had discovered before!!

I used to drive along this windy road along the ocean when I lived in Machiasport..Every morning the scene changes, but still amazes..It is so beautiful over there..Too bad you had to drive 2 hours to buy socks!!! Any way, I treated this with mostly muted colors but for some reason decided to do a bold blue shadow..I was going to leave the snow completely white, but I always give in to the urge of painting every bit of white space!!!I think it looks fine...

I did this painting very quickly today, but still I had fun..I hate my camera..I cannot get good pictures...Whatever, may be I should go spend some money on a good one!!

Bucks Harbor House

I really love this house. This is the same house in the painting with the sheep from few months ago...I tried to do a more accurate description of the house, the rest is abstract...The camera is cheap so the colors are not accurate...But any way, I like this painting a lot...

The fire

I was browsing on facebook and found this photo..I am not sure what attracted me to the picture..Is it loneliness, sadness, or desperation...Not sure, but the fire is warm and bright red..Is it a time for reflection? I don't know..Sometimes you do a painting and you hate it, but for some reason you are still attracted to it...Do I make any sense?!!!

Along the Airline

I painted with my boys today. I did a painting of the blueberry fields along the Airline (Route 9). The house is probably 150 years old but still standing..I want to do another one of the house itself, like Andrew Wyeth says, "A house Portrait".. However, I just wanted to do a quick one today and post it.. The boys painted transformers!!

I was struck by those odd chimneys in the early morning..I did a very quick sketch..Looking back at that building in the front, those chimneys are all different in real life, which seems strange, but yet makes it unique.....Do you know where this building is?
