Mt. Desert Island Shapes 8x10
Just finished up a weeklong plein air workshop teaching on Mt. Desert Island (Bar Harbor) in northern Maine.
Had a wonderful group of artists stoked on learning and painting.
We painted idyllic Maine harbors full of lobster boats moored near sailboats and yachts. I love the evergreens (firs I think) and rocky coast here.
A ships captain from Massachusetts at the turn of the century, after sailing to Maine for months on end wrote in a letter to his wife, "put a bucket of sand at the head of my grave. Ive seen enough stones for eternity".
My next foray to Maine will be for my Monhegan Island Mentoring workshop next August (the last week).
In that workshop we paint, paint, paint and hang out talking art for hours. Its limited to prior students of mine that are experienced painting outside. There are two critique sessions per day and I give lots of career advice, too. The class is nice and small (6 or 7) for lots of personal attention. If you think you'd be interested let me know ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). Only a seat or two left.
