I have been out painting en plein air and am having a great time. If you get to the Brooksville Public Library you will see two of my paintings hung (for sale):

  • A painting of Pumpkin Island Lighthouse and that shallow strip of water between it and Little Deer Isle at low tide. Look up the depth at low tide you boaters.

  • A painting looking across Eggemoggin Reach toward Pumpkin Island Lighthouse from our ocean swimming beach
I participated in the benefit for the Blue Hill Public Library "Paint the Peninsula" and donated two of my plein air paintings to that. They both sold.
  • A painting of the Lower Pasture at local Bagaduce River Equine Rescue. The donkeys showed up late to see what I was up to.

  • A painting of the island off Sand Beach in Stonington.

New Lady Slipper Shop and Housekeeping cottage

Lady Slipper stained 'to match' with all the fancy trim.

You will recognize the lamp post but we made some changes.

A wonderful opportunity to plant a new 'Polinator Garden.'

Native perennials to support local pollinators and butterflies.
