Marshall Point Lighthouse SOLD

                                              Marshall Point Lighthouse 6x8 oil on panel

Marshall Point Lighthouse is located in St. George, Maine. This lighthouse can be seen from the ferry to Monhegan Island if you take the ferry out of Port Clyde. Many people know this lighthouse as the one made famous in the movie Forrest Gump. I don't paint many lighthouses but I do love them. They are such an important part of the maritime history of Maine and I think they are very symbolic in many ways.

Whetstone, East Branch of the Penobscot River SOLD

                                          Whetstone Reflections  12x12 oil on canvas panel
                               Available at North Light Gallery

This view is just below the Whetstone Falls on the East Branch of the Penobscot River. There is a bridge there that provides a great view and location to paint from. I started this painting on location. I did a lot of work on this yesterday in the studio and finished it this morning. I think I will definitely return to this area many times because there are many beautiful views like this one.    www,

Port Clyde

                                              Sun Bathers  Port Clyde 6x8 oil on panel

This is a painting that I worked on this week. I started it on location in Port Clyde while I was waiting for the ferry to Monhegan Island. I liked the dory shapes in contrast to the verticals created by the pilings. I finished it in the studio.
