Katahdin Peak Season SOLD

                      Katahdin Peak Season  12x16 oil on canvas panel
                    Available at North Light Gallery

This is another painting that I started on location last fall. I have been working on it off and on since. I think this is finally finished. I have never painted a scene like this and struggled with several things including getting a feeling of the layering of the landscape and trying not to make the fall colors too intense. This photo is lacking in sharpness but I think you can still get a pretty good feeling for the finished piece. Thanks for stopping by. I have more studio work to show coming up. Sandy

Seal Cove August SOLD

                              Seal Cove August   8x16 oil on panel

  This is a painting I started on location last summer. These last couple of weeks I have been finishing paintings that have been in the studio waiting for some attention. Often I start a painting on location and then I will finish it in the studio. This gives me time to think about what I want to do for corrections and adjustments.  The next few paintings I will be posting here will be ones I have been working on over the past few weeks.  Outside my house today there is a lot of snow and I mean more snow than we have ever had! I can think back to when I was painting this and there where people swimming near by!!
