The painting challenge for September is over but I found that I was having fun painting mini-series of favorite places. I painted three views from a bridge that spans Pratts Brook in Yarmouth, Maine. Here is one example with the others posted in my Etsy Shop. They are all 5" x 7" acrylics.

They are all 5 x 7' acrylic paintings.

Paint Out at Sandy Beach

I got out to paint at Sandy Beach in Yarmouth yesterday. I timed it so I could be there at low tide to enjoy painting the marsh grasses. This is one of my favorite places to paint.
