Memories of Maine

Here is my latest painting, Memories of Maine. Last year while we vacationed in Lincoln, Maine I took a picture of the first sunset from our dock. This painting is my rendition of that breathtaking moment. It turned out to be one of the most challenging paintings that I have completed. It was my first attempt to paint a sunset and water with ripples. Although I struggled along the way to find the correct color palette (I repainted the water 4 times!) I feel accomplished with this painting and welcome the challenge of another sunset or water scene in the future.
