"Summer's Final Glory" 11" x 14" oil on linen
Just returned from a wonderful painting trip to the coast of Maine, in Boothbay Harbor. It was the location of this year's PAP-SE (Plein Air Painters of the Southeast) retreat. This year, we coordinated with Mary Phelps, owner of Coco Vivo Fine Art of Boothbay Harbor (as well as her location in Charleston, SC), to end the week with a one-evening exhibition, which was a huge success! This piece is one I painted of the last surge of color in the cottage garden in front of the 1800's "Cape House" where I stayed. It was a somewhat gray day which seemed to make the color explode... I had a fun time painting this, while nibbling on the apples from the tree overhead!

"Little Blue House" oil on panel 8" x 8"
I got a late start heading out this morning and the weather was stormy and questionable, but I pushed ahead in spite of it all. The last time I saw this little house, a couple of years ago, it was green, but passing this morning I discovered that it had change clothes and put on a soft blue dress. The light was striking it just so and the old tree was just the foil that made it all work. It was a fun morning!

This old pair of boats have been sitting in this same place for years, next to Crosby's Seafood on the way out to Folly Beach near Charleston. I've painted them before, but here's one more version.
