I looked through my plein air work and chose ones that fit the theme of the show.
Afterglow 11×14 oil
I painted some of them along the Maine seacoast and others in the mountains of New Hampshire.
Reflection 24×24 oil
One was painted in a meadow very close to where I live.
Winter Walk 12×16 oil
Another on a deep ocean bay just a few towns away.
Safe Haven 28×38 oil
I also noticed that I really like capturing reflections…and moods. Twilight is becoming a favorite time for me to paint.

The opening was in the Gallery on Chase Hill, a great spot overlooking the harbor. Marcus came so I’m in some of the pictures. Here I am with artists John Caggiano and Lori Putnam.
John caught up with his old friend Stapleton Kearns. He and Stapleton go back 30 years. They both lived and had galleries on Bearskin Neck in Rockport, MA. John’s galllery is still there at # 66. Stapleton now lives in NH.
A pause with Stefan Pastuhov. Stefan hails from Linconville, ME.
Gallery manager Amy Boucher stopped to visit with Anthony Watkins and me. Anthony painted a portrait of artist Lucia deLeiris in the garden of the Nonatum just before he arrived at the opening!
Artist Kathy Delumpa Allegri of Portland OR. might be the artist who traveled the farthest to the invitational. Here she is with some of the watercolors she painted during the week.
