"Acadian Morning", 9x12, oil on Raymar panel

I apologize for not posting in a while. I think I've been a little distracted with other things.

Today my friends, Vicki and Samantha of Vermont sent me some gorgeous photos from their recent trip to Acadia National Park in Maine. I was so excited to see all the beautiful photos that they took, because Acadia Nat'l Park is such a beautiful place to visit!

Although we have gone up to Maine for two summers in a row, this year we were unable to fit it into our schedules. So receiving these photos this morning really cheered me up after over a whole week of not painting a danged thing!

I did this one quickly. It's a quick study and not intended to be polished but more of an impression of a place that I remember very well and love! But doing it definitely got me out of the rut I was in! To all my friends up in Maine this summer, including Samantha, Vicki, Terry, Pam, Susan, Jane, Hodges and so many others, I hope you are enjoying the cool weather , because it is stinking hot here in Florida and pretty much everywhere else in the country!

Thanks again, Samantha, for today's inspiration!

It's wonderful . The composition seems so masterfully done to me. With the contrast of colors and the sloping lines in all the right places. Well done! And beautiful!
