Canoeing the East Branch of the Penobscot River, Maine SOLD

                           Rapid Response  8x16 oil on canvas panel
                  Available at North Light Gallery

  I have been working on some different subject matter in the studio these last couple of weeks. This is one of them. With this painting I was hoping to catch the sparkle of the light and the excitement of the moment.
  There are a lot of people hitting the rivers of Maine in their canoes right now with the snow rapidly melting and the rivers running high. A couple of days ago we had a rain storm that brought 3 inches to some areas on top of all the snow melt. It is a pretty exciting time.
  I hope you are enjoying spring were you are. It has been very cool temps here and a slow arrival of spring this year but the crocuses are coming up in the garden!  Sandy

Monhegan-One More and 2015 Show Schedule! SOLD

                                     8x16 oil on canvas panel   SOLD

   I have always wanted to paint the various buildings that line the harbor when you arrive on Monhegan.  I love the lyrical shapes and the way they bump along the rocky shore line.  If you go to Monhegan enough you know each one of these shapes and overseeing all of them is the iconic leader The Island Inn. There is so much history there not to mention all the past weather these structures have seen and survived. I think this is the last of Monhegan paintings for a while. I hope you have enjoyed them. 
    I have just posted my new show schedule for 2015. You can see it by clicking on this link then click on the show link in the left column.  My next online project will be to update the paintings on my web site and install a buy it now button on each painting to make it more convenient for all my customers out there who can't make it to the shows and would like the opportunity buy my paintings online. Stay tuned!!  Thanks again for stopping by, Sandy
