Maine Meadow

Click here to bid.

The meadows at Laudholm Farm are a favorite place of mine.  You can walk through woods and high rolling meadows for hours. There is an old road through an apple orchard that leads to the beach.

Marsh Gold

After the sun sets the marsh glows in a golden light. At Parsons Beach the tide was high and the pines were reflected in the golden water.

Mist and Surf

It was a misty lavender tinted day when I painted this picture in Friendship, Maine.  The wind was blowing hard pushing the clouds out to sea. It was choppy in the harbor and waves were crashing on the rocks.

White Pines

White Pines grow in the forests on the edge of the marshes. Years of steady winds off the ocean make most of them lean in the same direction.

Marsh Reflections

Miles of marshes stretch up the southern coast of Maine. All types of animals live here and thousands of birds use this region as a rest stop on their annual north and south migrations.

Beach Roses and Salt Hay

The west side of Drakes Island is edged with acres of marshes. Here the land is protected from the wind off the Atlantic. Its quiet here and the sound of the surf is distant. Here beach roses, meadows and small pines flourish.

Free Happy Chickens

Click here to Bid.

These chickens were very happy birds.  They ran up to their owner when she brought us out to see them like little puppy dogs, not chickens !  They then proceeded to run all over the lawn searching out bugs and other little things to eat.  They never stopped moving. It was a challenge to paint them as they ran around!
