A very small, special island


A while ago our photos and paintings of Long Pond got me thinking about all my favorite places in Maine, so I thought I'd talk a little about another of my favorite places. This is one island that is very special to me. It is small, only seven acres, only a mile or so from the nearest harbor. A wonderful place for contemplation, good conversation, and painting. Here is a painting I completed last fall from a plein air study I did while on the island last summer.

It's a lovely painting and what amuses me is how reminiscent it is of the scene from your studio window a couple of posts ago - just put a bit of blue water in the background of the studio view!
