Business Trip... to Maine!

Alex and I (Nancy Bea here) made a quick visit up to Mount Desert Island to stay with Diana while taking care of a little gallery business (Alex and I each have two galleries in Maine that exhibit our work, one is the same) and of course, PAINTING! Which is our business, for real. We stopped in Freeport for coffee and a little L.L.Bean-ing. Notice my business-like attache case (really, an archery set!)

Diana and her sweet dog, Tucker, welcomed us warmly!

Our first day of painting was a total pleasure, despite my easel becoming marooned!

We painted in Stonington one day and did some business with our mutual gallery there, gWatson. Here is Ron Watson talking with Alex.

Lupines were everywhere! It's a very floral time for coastal Maine.

Painting on the side of Cadillac Mountain one early evening was truly a highlight of the trip! Diana's gorgeous hair was flaming:

We worked hard all the hours we could. I came home with eight pieces or "sketches". Here is Alex with her Cadillac piece:

Happy sigh! I wish the rest of the MLG had been there with us. We'll do that soon, I hope. Farewell till we meet again, in Maine!
