Beach Reader

Well we are done moving, finally.
I am writing this post from the buzzing local coffee house "Little Dog" in downtown Brunswick. A great little place that i think we will haunt while we are living here. Try the mango passion fruit smoothie!
This being the first morning that me and Raquele are able to do something other then pick up and drop off boxes. Again, finally!

The Boat Show

This coming Thursday the 18th of August is the end of the "Boat" show at Maine Art in Kennebunk. You might remember this piece from a couple posts ago. The one on the easel with the blank canvas then painted in the next post?? Well this is a better photo of that piece.

Moving update: we made it! Everything is in boxes and I'm drooling looking at my new skylight... Can't wait to put that to use and get back to work. I'll post a photo of that light soon.

Goodbye Bristol

Well the time has come to move on... This week we will be moving from the studio/apt in Bristol to Brunswick. The new diggs will be a smaller apartment right near the center of town. I will definitely miss being so close to the harbors i like to haunt but I am excited to paint some different scenery.
In preparation for this move I have been sorting thru the ridiculous piles of paintings and collected "stuff" from the few plus years we have been at this location. I have cut up well over two hundred paintings. And tied together way too many book.. Now just need to move it all..
This painting (Fat Cat Day Dream 30x40") is from last year and even though the photo is not great I decided to finally share it here. This image is a view of the door to my studio with my cat Choncho in the window watching the crows bounce and leaves skate across the yard.. I will miss this place.

This piece "Docked" 18x24" is from a new favorite spot that a friend showed me this summer. I love this area and always find a spark there that gets the brush moving! People always ask if you were stranded on a deserted island what would you bring. I'm gonna ask you, if you had a loaded easel setup and could only pick one place to be stranded, to paint, where would that be? Wow that is a paint nerd question.. Don't be lazy? Respond even if anonymous. Thanks for stopping by.
