"Acadian Morning", 9x12, oil on Raymar panel, Acadia Nat'l PArk, Cadillac Mountain, Maine landscapes
I apologize for not posting in a while. I think I've been a little distracted with other things.
Today my friends, Vicki and Samantha of Vermont sent me some gorgeous photos from their recent trip to Acadia National Park in Maine. I was so excited to see all the beautiful photos that they took, because Acadia Nat'l Park is such a beautiful place to visit!
Although we have gone up to Maine for two summers in a row, this year we were unable to fit it into our schedules. So receiving these photos this morning really cheered me up after over a whole week of not painting a danged thing!
I did this one quickly. It's a quick study and not intended to be polished but more of an impression of a place that I remember very well and love! But doing it definitely got me out of the rut I was in! To all my friends up in Maine this summer, including Samantha, Vicki, Terry, Pam, Susan, Jane, Hodges and so many others, I hope you are enjoying the cool weather , because it is stinking hot here in Florida and pretty much everywhere else in the country!
Thanks again, Samantha, for today's inspiration! This painting is available for purchase through my daily painters gallery. PLease go here to purchase the painting for $200, plus $10 shipping and handling.
