On (Painting) Safari in New England...

Dear Friends and Family,

This summer we combined a quick college tour for Bella, with visits with good friends and cousins in Maine and Cape Cod.  Flying from Paris to Montreal, we stopped at McGill University, then travelled down through New York State, stopping at other schools.  After dropping Bella and Sam off at their respective summer programs, Caryn and I spent a week in Brunswick, Maine.

The population in Maine is about one million, but in the summer it triples.  Even so, I found myself alone at Maquoit Bay, near the town of Brunswick.  I was able to make these two plein air sketches on this beautiful bay.

Later in the week I visited Wolfe’s Neck State Park, in Freeport, Maine.  A fantastic landscape of rocks, sea, islands and forest.

I came across this building on the way to Wolf’s Neck Park.  I don’t know whether it’s a private house or business, abandoned or not, but I found a path to a small island with a good vantage point, where I spent the next couple of hours making this sketch.
