Islands and the ocean aren't my only interests right now, though. Like I did last year, I painted far inland a lot, especially during the fall, in the woods up around Greenville, Monson, and Katahdin, and I feel like I am continuing to get to know Maine in a new way. I also ventured into New Hampshire and did some sketching in the White Mountains. I'm hoping to do more of that in the year ahead, even as I continue to revisit my favorite coastal places to paint. We are so fortunate here in Maine, with the wealth of natural beauty all around, and I never take it for granted. I love to return to certain places again and again. They feel like never-ending sources of joy, in painting and in life.
That's all for now - except to say THANK YOU to friends and supporters who came out to see and purchase my work this past year. I appreciate you so much, and am looking ahead with hopeful anticipation to the new decade.
