"Sunset Stripes"

a little movie of the scene after the painting was done

Yesterday I was back in Harvard, MA, at my favorite sunset painting spot. It's just so nice to be painting outside this time of year, and not freezing. I've been painting out for the last 4 days, and only Tuesday was really cold, in the marsh in the Rachel Carson preserve in southern Maine. I hope to get in a few more days before it's really cold.

I was back in Harvard, MA this afternoon, painting into the sunset. Here's the first of the two paintings I managed before it got too dark to see. Next time I'll bring my two headed book light! A video of the scene is below. For those reading this in email, click here to go to my blog in a browser where you'll be able to see the video.

Sketching the orange lobster boat

Oil sketches of the orange lobster boat on 7"x12" Canson canva-paper

Lots of fun this afternoon with the Plein Air Painters of Maine in the Puddledock section of Portsmouth; bright sunshine, relative warmth, and a gorgeous orange lobster boat off Round Island. I did a couple of oil sketches of the boat as it swung back and forth on its mooring, on a piece of Canson Canva-paper, which I like a lot. What do you think?

PAPME Show at the BRAF Gallery

"Time to Bale"
8"x10" oil on Raymar panel
$325 framed

"From Mt. Agamenticus"
5"x7" oil on Centurion oil primed linen panel
$200 framed

I'm pleased to have two paintings in the annual Plein Air Painters of Maine show at the BRAF Gallery in Boothbay Harbor. The show runs through November 25th and all paintings in the show were painted en plein air. My "Time to Bale" was painted between Freeport and Brunswick on a beautiful Sunday morning in September. "From Mt. Agamenticus" was painted on a sunny warm afternoon in October with the Plein Air Painters of Maine (PAPME) southern group in York. It's great fun to paint with PAPME, which has four sub groups, divided by region: southern, Boothbay, northern, and western. An email is sent out once a week with the locations for each group for that week. Take a look at the PAPME blog if you'd like to join us.

"November Sunset"


"November Sunset"
5"x7" oil on linen panel
$100

Here's the second painting I did yesterday, sunset in the balmy temperatures of early November in Massachusetts. That's Mt. Wachusett in the distance. I made a short video at the end of the previous painting, which you can see below in this post, or view here from the email. It's such fun painting into the sunset.

This afternoon it was 60 degrees! I couldn't resist the warmth and sunny sky, and was off to capture the 4:35PM sunset in Harvard, MA, looking towards Mount Wachusett. I started with the above late afternoon version to warm up. I'll post a later video tomorrow and the second painting, of the sunset.
