There’s no place like Acadia…

I never seem to tire of Acadia, no matter how many times I visit.

My latest trip, in June 2013, was productive. Of course, there were the usual challenges for painting on-site, en plein air. I’ve coined a term, “plein airritations” for them. Shifting light, changing weather, changing tides. Rain. Wind! Bugs, especially the mosquitoes (State Bird of Maine). People. Heat. Sun. Drying paint. The list goes on and on. But there are also those perfect moments, those visual surprises and treasures, those soul-filling, time-erasing painting sessions (sometimes with only a loon for company…)  I can’t get enough. Perhaps the photos and paintings will begin to show you why Acadia is so special.

All the paintings shown here are available at Argosy Gallery, and will be shown at the First Friday Art Walk in Bar Harbor on August 2.

This was the first time in all my many trips to Acadia that I had the pleasure of figure drawing sessions. Always a nice change of pace, the figure drawing rescued a rainy day or two from complete disaster.

Again, I did not keep a daily blog, but here is a selection of photos, paintings, and drawings from my painting trip. Enjoy!
