Posted on March 13th, 2016 by maineislandtreasures

It was truly an honor to have been commissioned to paint this 24 x 36″ oil on canvas of Wooster Farm on North Haven as it’s the former home of Frank Benson, the American Impressionist.  I actually painted two oils of this composition to be displayed in two locations.  This site is breathtaking and one […]

Ripple Effect

Posted on May 4th, 2014 by maineislandtreasures

The serenity of being mesmerized by the droplets off of my oar onto calm water inspired Ripple Effect.  Similar to Splash which was painted from a clear, midsummer’s day boating adventure, the skies on this early September day featured a high, thin overcast which diffused the sunlight.  Ripple Effect, a 24×30 oil on canvas, is […]

New Skyscapes!

Although it’s been years since I’ve stepped away from my TV Meteorology career, my head is still always in the clouds.  It’s a joy to paint these skyscapes because I can become captivated all over again!  Above, “Ethereal Light,” a 36×48″ oil on canvas is now being exhibited at EcoHome Studio in Portland. Below, “Crimson […]

I’m honored to be one of 65 Maine artists asked to decorate a small, unfinished bench for a dinner auction to benefit the Maine Discovery Museum.  Oh what fun!  I knew I wanted to do a shell-themed design, but first I painted the bench with Annie Sloan’s chalk paint after receiving a crash course from […]

Reflections: Monhegan Harbor & Seal Cove

Posted on September 30th, 2013 by maineislandtreasures

As we were departing from our day trip to Monhegan, the reflection of the shoreline foliage created an almost fire-like appearance on the water’s surface.  The bright colors of this 16 x 40 x 1.5 inch oil on canvas are quite a contrast to this 11×14″ Seal Cove reflection when the morning fog had settled […]
