Maine Paintings of Big Maine Weather

Storm ClearingThe weather in Maine can change in minutes. Things don’t linger here on the southern coast. Its one of the things I love about this region of Maine.  The coastline in my neighborhood is often hit hard by weather blowing in off the ocean. We don’t have islands off shore blocking the impact of the weather and protecting us from full impact.

I like weather. I like to experience stormy weather.  I like to paint the drama that unfolds before me. Some of my best paintings  happen when the wind and water are pounding. It isn’t easy to paint in these conditions.  If I have done my homework I can paint in almost any extreme conditions. Its that preparation that makes all the difference. Its all about being in a certain mental state and having all my tools and equipment close at hand.

Extreme Painting

Plein air Magazine has a feature called Extreme Painting.
.  My good friend Jane Ramsey came up to Maine last November to paint with me.  She had never been to Maine before…so I took her all over to paint in as many locations as we could in 4 days. She took my picture while I was painting in strong winds on Parsons Beach. She sent it in to the magazine. They published it this month – what a surprise !

Thank you Jane!
