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!

Please take a look at my Maine Landscape painting blog and website below.

Exit, Old Port, Portland, Maine

Was in the Old Port today, but it was very foggy and cool.  I decided to post a pic from a sunny day with a painting that I did of this location.  The building on the left is being transformed from a self storage facility to a large law firms office.

McLaughlin Garden, South Paris, Maine

Beautiful warm and sunny day for the Lilac Festival at the McLaughlin Garden.  The air was scenteded with lilacs in the whole garden and the woodland garden was a wonder.  Brought home some new plants for our garden.

Belted Galloways, Rockport, Maine

The coast was completely socked in today, but it made all the new greens of late spring look all that more beautiful.  Took a trip to Camden hoping to paint, but the views were too foggy.  Loved stopping in Rockport to spend a few minutes with the Belteds.

Kennebunk Monastery, Kennebunk, Maine

Painted at the Franciscan Monastery with friends today, a beautiful sunny day!  This is favorite spot to paint, very peaceful.  The far view is really changing, what was a line of trees and then Kennebunk Beach is now a new upscale housing development.

The Sun, Westbrook, Maine

The sun just came out briefly after eleven days in hiding.  Ran out to enjoy the garden and take some pics, very humid air, feels more like Hawaiian rain forest than Maine!

Colony Hotel, Kennebunkport, Maine

Haven't posted many photos lately, we've had nine days of rain, fog, clouds, wind, cold, mist, and downpours with only a couple of hours of sun in Maine.  Still cloudy today, but I was at the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport for The Animal Welfare Society Gala and Art Auction and I loved this view.

Studio, New Plein Air Painting Cart

Fred surprised me today with a new bag for plein air painting!  I loaded it right up to be ready to go out when our six days of rain end.  The weatherman said it's "back to the caves" for Mainers for most of the week.  It's a "Husky" from Home Depot.
