"Gilsland #1" and a visit to Rockland

It was a wonderfully busy holiday weekend, which we extended through today. On Sunday, we went with some friends to Rockland to see the Connie Hayes show at the Dowling-Walsh Gallery. It was magnificent, and inspirational. All I wanted to do was get home and paint. So yesterday I visited Maine Audubon's Gilsland Farm in Falmouth both in the early morning (for photographs) and in the late afternoon, to paint. This view is from the bottom of the North Field, looking west into a copse of trees with the Presumpscot estuary in the distance. Gilsland #1 is an oil (5"X7").


  1. Bobbi, lovely painting. You did a nice job capturing the light.

  2. Thanks, Stephanie! I wouldn't have painted looking into the sun before we tool our class with Colin.
