Pemaquid Point, Maine

Beautiful day at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park today painting with the Pastel Painters of Maine for our annual painting retreat. A wonderful group of artists! A very supportive and sharing group with new tips, plein air and pastel painting techniques. A large group dinner at the Seagull restaurant with blueberry pie and then painting in the studio made it a great day!

Caught this scene at Togue Pond this morning, hundreds of fish spawning near the shore. Loons and quiet, snow still on Mt. Katahdin. Paradise!

Golden Road, Millinocket, Maine

Last light on the marsh on the Golden Road, peepers  and birds calling and a few mosquitoes and me. Some Friday evening people cruising the Golden Road looking for a moose. Saw one Tuesday night at River Pond. Today, spent the day painting with a pair of ducks and a pair of Canada geese and heaven knows what else!

Abol Falls and Stacyville, Maine

 In the Katahdin region painting for the week, picked a good one! 70 degree temps in the daytime and no black flies yet. The trees are budding, yellow green and red and the Penobscot River is roaring. This is paradise...
