"Summer's Final Glory"

"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!
