Acadia's Duck Stream Bridge sold

                    Duck Stream Bridge Acadia  6x8 oil on canvas panel

 I have been to this location many times and painted other views here. This is the first time I included this bridge. It was a sunny early spring day. I was able to stand on the rocks bordering the stream. There were a lot of small birds flitting about in the nearby branches while I painted. In between brush work I was grabbing my binoculars to see the birds up close. One bird seemed to hang around for some time, a Myrtle Warbler. I had never seen this type before. Warblers are some of my favorite migrating birds to look for. There are quite a variety of warblers and I am happy when I get to see a new one. There were also a few Gold Finches with their striking yellow and black coloring.   The summer is shaping up to be a busy one. I will be going on several painting trips and doing my outdoor shows in between.  My first trip will be in about one week. Monhegan Island. Looking forward to this. 
This week I made my first delivery of paintings to my new gallery,
North Light Gallery in Millinocket. While I was there I had the good luck to go out and paint without the black flies attacking me. I had two beautiful days to roam and paint. I hope to post some soon.   Sandy
