Since the ground is covered with snow and I'm freezing inside my house, I figured I had better post something more recent, and with some white in it. I did this drawing yesterday and decided to use it on my Christmas cards. The wind chill yesterday morning (and today!) was about 20 below zero...and it's not even winter yet. But I'm not complaining. It's supposed to get up to 40 degrees tomorrow – a heat wave, no less!
The sunsets here in northern Maine can be breathtaking, especially when there are clouds in the sky and they light up pink and orange, but the pink sky early on a winter morning is also quite beautiful (if you're willing to go outside at 7am when the wind chill is 20 below zero). That's the same barn as in the "Lonely Barn" painting below, but seen from further down the hill, and I've included the house and other structures so the barn isn't as lonely, especially with it being so close to Christmas.
I am a full time artist, originally from Massachusetts, currently living in northern Maine. I work primarily in oils and pastel, and occasionally watercolor. I offer instruction in drawing and painting at my studio, which is in an old renovated potato barn.
