Welcome to my daily photo blog!

I spend a lot of time taking reference photos for my landscape paintings and photos of interesting things in my daily life. I decided to do a blog of these pics. Hope you enjoy them!

Dock Square, Kennebunkport, Maine

Dropped off work in Kennebunk for the "Clothesline" show at River Tree.  Had a great seat at Allison's to watch the buoys and lights going up on the tree in Dock Square.  Did some gift shopping in the Port, remember to buy local this year!

Stroudwater, Portland, Maine

Love this place in the Stroudwater section of Portland, love to paint here and to see the light at different times of day here.  Congress Street is so busy here though, with tens of thousands of cars and trucks zooming by here all day and night.  Very hard to enjoy the beauty of the light and tides.

Pine Point Beach, Scarborough, Maine

Painted at the Scarborough Marsh today and took a long walk on the beach after painting.  Hardly a soul on the beaches in Maine in November!

Scarborough Beach, Scarborough, Maine

Wonderful gray day, painted for two hours in the morning and then a long loop walk from Ferry Beach to Western Beach to Scarborough Beach and back to Ferry.  Not a soul to be seen on either beach, a little like "The Road."

Wolfe's Neck Farm, Freeport, Maine

This beautiful girl posed for me today at the farm on a gorgeous warm fall day in Maine.  I think she wants me to paint her portrait, I just might do that...

Fall Back, Westbrook, Maine

Turned the clocks back and now sunset is at 4:30!  Beautiful sunset though, liked the reflection in the windows. Yes the trim sure does need painting!

Evening Light, Westbrook, Maine

Shot this while on our way to the Wet and Wild Environmental Film Festival at USM tonight.  I love the color of the sky after a cloudy day when the sun breaks out.  This was at 4:45pm which will mean that tomorrow at 3:45 it will be heading toward sunset!

2 Walks, Portland and Damariscotta, Maine

 Took 2 walks on this rainy day, in Portland to see the MECA Auction preview and to River Arts in Damariscotta.  Love walking in the misty rain in the city.  Quote for the day from a young man in Portland "Do you know that if you change the lenses on a handicam you can see into almost anything including the mail?"

Late Afternoon Walk in the Brook, Westbrook, Maine

Vallee Square in late afternoon, about 40 degrees.  Perfect temp for a walk, love the shadows and the light on the brick at this time of day.

Voting at the Armory, Westbrook, Maine


I was happy to see that the polls were packed in Westbrook this afternoon.  I hope that the election results give us leaders who stand for freedom, compassion, equality, truth and common sense.

Pemaquid Beach, Bristol, Maine

In Damariscotta today, took a side trip to Pemaquid Point and Pemaquid Beach.  Had the beach all to myself!  Pretty cold in the 40's with a stiff wind.  Damariscotta is the perfect town, Reny's, River Grill, little shops, drug store, art galleries, great views, no big box...
