Maine Art

Maine Art, creating Maine Art, is a joy.
The Maine coast is one of the most beautiful, powerful, and healing places in the world. Painting it's scenery is always a richly satisfying experience.

I did the original Pastel of "3 Sisters Sentinal" during a heavy storm on the island of Monhegan, Maine. I liked the painting so much that I painted 9"x12" versions in both Watercolors and Oils... I like all three versions and think they demonstrate my use of the three mediums in an interesting way.

...for me, of all the shorelines in Maine, Monhegan Island is a particuarly special place. With it's wonderful Granite headlands and deep sea combers, it is a place that the heart remembers long after the ferry home.
