Old Eastport Firetruck

.I went out to Quoddy Village today with Marty and we painted this truck. It has such a nice color and shape to it. I found the shadow on the side to be a challenge, but am happy with it.

Shipwrecked at Deep Cove

.This boat has been washed up on the beach at Deep Cove for years. It's like an old skeleton. This was a fun day painting with a couple of friends, and i am happy with it.

Backyard Barn

This is the scene from my back yard. It never fails to nourish me when I look at it. It doesn't belong to me, but it is mine. The sun always sets behind the trees and the sky looks amazing on many evenings. Soon it will be covered with snow, but I won't think about that.

South End apples

Eastport has hundreds of neglected apple trees on the island. I have always been attracted to painting them. This is my first attempt. These apples are bigger than most, but tart. This one is actually on my mother in law's property and she likes to make apple sauce with them.This painting is for sale on e-bay.

This is an old boat called "Friendship" down at Deep Cove. It has seen better days, but still
has a very cool look and a soulfull feeling about it. The grasses and weeds at low tide have some beautiful colors in them.
