This weekend my sister, Michelle and I drove up to visit another sister of ours who lives in Maine. We turned it into a visit/painting trip. Here is a what I painted first. This was done across 2 pages in my Sketchbook Project journal. This is the Colonial Pemaquid Cemetery.
After sneaking off for a lobster roll lunch, we returned to Ft. William Henry to paint a view of the water there.
Then we made a quick stop at Pemaquid Point to browse in the lighthouse shop and look around. This is a tiny one...just 4 x 6.
On Sunday Michelle and Tina went to see the pumpkinfest regatta. I went down the street to paint one of the lovely Damariscotta houses.
In the afternoon we headed up to Camden and found a spot with a view of the Curtis Island Lighthouse. I did this one in my Sketchbook Project book, but I guess I was talking too much and wasn't concentrating since I painted it upside down. (I will have to turn the pages around. lol)
Tina was working on Monday, so Michelle and I headed off to Boothbay. I have always wanted to go to the Oven's Mouth Preserve so we went on an "easy" hike that we are still recovering from. This is what I painted there. This one is 5 x 7.
After lunch we headed to a park in Boothbay that is on the water with nice views. I figure if I practice painting boats enough, some day they might look like what they are supposed to look like. lol
Our last stop was in Ogunquit on the way home. I timed it so we had about an hour to paint, time for lunch, and then time to drive home without hitting much traffic. This is a painting of Marginal Way in Ogunquit.
In addition to painting, I got to see some of the pumpkins that were decorated for Damariscotta's Pumpinfest. They were just super. Here are a few of my favorites.
