Ok, I'm back. My off season abuse of the Blog is about over. I promise! This is a recent painting (Sun Bleached 24x30") from near my new home area in Brunswick. I saw this pattern of darks, some great color and had to paint it. I actually didn't make it off my street while searching for a muse this day.
As I write this, Maine is in the early stages of possibly a foot of snow, it is really coming down and looks beautiful. I wish we could move the holidays a little so the snow here would match up a little more with Christmas... Who's with me? Lets move Christmas!!
