Goose River

Goose River

Goose River on a misty morning, Swanville, Maine. I love this spot along Swanville Road and pass it often. This particular spring morning the fog was thick and beautiful. I’ve tried to capture the feeling of gazing into the thick fog where everything is vague and all of a color.

Here are some images along the journey of this painting:

Acrylics for speed!

Acrylics for speed!

Well, I found myself in a bit of a crunch for time. You see, I have applied for a fine art cooperative which juries in February (yeah this month!!) and I don’t really have a ‘body of work’ to show. I had forgotten just how long oil paint takes to dry and so PANIC ensued!!! Fear not I thought… Acrylics!!! Now, I have never painted in acrylics before except some denim jackets long long ago ….. but off to the store I went and bought a ton of colors…. and WOW holy moly does this stuff dry fast! I am saved! It’s not the same, and my true love is oil .. but hey…it’s not bad!!

So here is an image of the 2nd painting I’ve done in 30 years, in acrylics!
