Fore River, Portland, Maine

View of the Fore River from the Mercy Hospital building.  I was commissioned in 2008 to paint 3 large paintings for the lobby of the Hospital.  I was very happy to have my work included with many other local artists in this new building.

A Tale of Two Beaches, Scarborough, Maine

Went to Ferry Beach for my morning walk, it was high tide and there was zero beach!  Extremely windy and big waves.  So I took it over to Scarborough Beach, not so windy with calm seas,  beautiful, not a soul on the beach.
