My sister, Mickey and I took a ride up to Maine to visit my sister, Tina and her family.
Of course my paints came along on the trip. This morning we went walking for exercise.
I brought along my camera because I knew I wanted to take some photos of the decorated
pumpkins along the street that are still on display from the Pumpkinfest two weeks ago. The pumpkins each weigh between 200-500 pounds.
I'll show you a few.
Does this one make you want a burger and fries? lol
Or a swim in the ocean?
This one looks like he needs to eat a little more.
And here's a public service announcement.
Later in the morning I went out for a while to paint in town.
This is Nash House just down from the only traffic light in town.
It has several businesses inside.
The red tree was just calling to be painted and this is 5 x 7.
By the time I was finished I was wearing my fingerless gloves and shaking.
The temperature up here is a bit on the cold side.
After lunch Mickey and I rode down to Pemaquid Point...my all-time favorite spot in this area. It is not a trip to Maine without seeing the Pemaquid Lighthouse. It was cold and windy down there so I was wearing a sweater, a winter jacket, and a very heavy sweatshirt with a hood over everything.
I guess I was warm enough for a while because I painted without wearing my gloves.
Here I am on the rocks where I sat to paint.
Here is the painting in my sketchbook...about 5 x 7.
Mickey was bundled up too.
For our next sketch location we headed over to Colonial Pemaquid and did a view of the water while sitting in the warm car.
