Thank you Scott. It isnt me. But it was a beautiful place! I have lived in Maine my whole life. Love it here.

Love your painting here Wenda!  Nice work on the reflections and is that you out their doing a little plein air?  Nice work!  Seems these days like every time I turn around some one is either going to Maine, living in Maine, or they were just there - must be a wonderful place to be.

Wendy I do like your paintings this one is so calm I can imagine myself the artist just the sort of place I would like to be, never done outdoors yet.  I could stare at it for ages and almost hear the birds singing.

Nice one! I like the water especially!

Comment by Sarah Irland on June 19, 2017 at 7:25am

Wenda, this is beautiful.  I love the many shades of green in this and the blues in the rocks and water reflection.  This has such a relaxing feel to it - a place we would all like to be in!

I just love this Wenda. Great colors as always and love how you painted the artist at her easel.  It's how I imagined myself as an artist.  In reality I'm more likely to be humped over a table in my family room wearing my pajamas!!
