Kettle Cove 17

A new painting from April 5 at Kettle Cove, Cape Elizabeth, Maine. One of my favorite places to paint and walk, big sky views and fabulous sunsets. A favorite getaway for Portlanders. This is the largest pastel that I have done, it was for the window of Aucocisco Gallery for Double Dozen, a show with my husband photographer Fred Michel. This is a thirteen week series of two person one week long shows.

Sold Katahdin Lake 09-06, North Light Gallery, Millinocket, Maine

Thank you North Light Gallery! Did this mini painting at Katahdin Lake Wilderness Camps from a photo on a very rainy fall day from the covered porch of my cabin. Sometimes it rains when I go on plein air painting expeditions and then I just have to find a place to paint. I always bring some of my photo prints with me just in case...
