Here is a few of my pieces from the show at Tidemark, some of the photos don't really provide true color but at least they are not blurry..?. The top one "Stareing at the Glare" (11x14) is from my first trip to Boothbay to paint with the Plein Air group that meets weekly and was my first piece of the day.
The Second piece "Just Afternoon" (24x36") is from when I was painting at Castle Tucker in Wiscasset with Roberta, neither of us painted the castle, haha.
3rd piece is of Main St in Waldoboro, (16x20) I was painting in the street that day and yeah I know standing in the road with an easel will definitely get you some strange looks.... I got a few that day but I had to see around the cars..?.
This street has some great hills that look great as the sun goes lower in the day, I hope to paint this place quite a bit in the future.
The last piece is of " Lilac Cottage" (16x20") I think I paint Lilac Cottage or some part of it once a week at least, the owners John and Bill are great, and deserve much thanks for letting us (painters) park and roam their property for our paintings, Thank you! Lilac Cottage is a beautiful Antique shop that is surrounded by,,, you guessed it, Lilacs. They are starting to bloom and when they are full in, I will probably have to be removed by the police to stop painting them, ha.
My disclaimer: Blogger places picture where they want when they want so If my writing doesn't coincide with the photos sorry and good luck figuring it out.
Quote: "I've caught this magical landscape and it's the enchantment of it that I'm so keen to render. Of course lots of people will protest that it's quite unreal, but that's just too bad."
This extra Quote is something I enjoy and thought I would share it with you today, the end of both quotes ( Both Monet)are refreshing and fun,,, enjoy.
Quote 2: "We're having marvellous weather and I wish I could send you a little of the sunshine. I am slaving away on six paintings a day. I'm giving myself a hard time over it as I haven't yet managed to capture the colour of this landscape, there are moments when I'm appalled at the colours I'm having to use, I'm afraid what I'm doing is just dreadful and yet I really am understating it; the light is simply terrifying."
