Best Blueberry Crop

I thought you would all enjoy seeing this photo of guild member Diana holding up a stem laden with blueberries. I guess the growing conditions were ideal because it was by far the best crop we've seen in years! On this occasion we were hiking up Champlain Mountain on Mount Desert, and we couldn't resist stopping and filling quarts of containers full of them. Between hiking and painting we managed to keep busy during blueberry season.

This is one of the paintings that I (Eliza) will have in the Sherry French "Mainly Maine" show, called "Summer's End".


  • Both Eliza and I (Nancy Bea) were invited to participate in this exhibit.

    Click here for more info on this group show. I have two pieces in it, both set on Monhegan Island, Maine. Unfortunately neither Eliza or I will be at the reception for the show as right then we will actually be on Monhegan, painting, with the rest of the Maine Landscape Guild. Can't wait!

    Vacation Time

    I'm currently in Maine for a long anticipated family vacation. Yesterday I managed to carve out some time to paint. The view is the path that leads from the cottage to the beach. From the beach you can gaze over to Mt Desert Island. Bliss!
