"Ice Cream or Pie?"

Ice Cream or Pie?
8 x 8 Pastel

This subject was chosen by Kitty Clark for our painters' group April exercise. I like the subject a lot (who doesn't like strawberries?And the green colander is wonderful!). So, I did both a pastel and an oil version of it. The oil needs a couple of little adjustments and will be posted shortly. Now, what to do with the strawberries? Make ice cream or a pie?

"Quiet September in Vinalhaven"

Quiet September in Vinalhaven
Oil 6 x 6

In September, most of the tourists are gone from Vinalhaven and the fishermen are still out to sea. The town is delightfully quiet and there are only a few lobster traps in sight. A great time of year to walk around on the waterfront and enjoy the scenery.

"Storage Sheds in Vinalhaven"

Storage Sheds in Vinalhaven
8 x 10 Oil

Vinalhaven is a beautiful working fishing town located in the Fox Islands in Knox County, Maine. It is well known to the artist community as inspiration abounds all over the island. I particularly like the old fishing storage buildings in town. These buildings are a common landscape along the coast of Maine. This painting is the first in a series of Maine fishing buildings.
