Normally I avoid doing landscape paintings on dark, gloomy days. But the snow could all be gone tomorrow. I saw this on my way to drop off recycling and get wood chips over in Ellsworth. Couldn’t get it out of my head! I came home, loaded my paints into the truck and took off. Woodchips can stay in the truck for another day. This view is on the other side of the ridge from my house.
From there I went over to Antrim Creek Natural Area. As usual, I had the whole beach to myself. I wish I could send you a recording: complete silence except for a pair of squawking sandhill cranes flying over. The bay ice stretched out as far out as I could see. Very peaceful!
It’s just as well I didn’t try to start another painting. The rain began about 10 minutes later. Ah, Spring!
