I'm back from the north country, Lubec, Maine and Campobello Island, N.B., where it was sunny all week! I painted the Quoddy Lighthouse, eastern-most point in the U.S., while attending a mentoring workshop with Michael Chesley Johnson. All the visitors to the light house were very nice, stopping to visit with me and take MY picture! It was fun.
Of course, I painted many other beautiful spots and took lots of photos.
Not only did both my paintings get juried into the Members Fall Show at Newburyport Art Assoc. but "The Guardians" won an Honorable Mention. How sweet it is! This painting was done of the osprey nest and one of the two lighthouses on Thatcher Island, off of Rockport, MA.
Thatcher Island and it's two lighthouses was a often painted motif for all the Gloucester and Rockport artists of the past generation of Cape Ann artists.
