The 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.
