here's a pic of Ineka hard at work. the scenery on Mt. Desert Island is phenomenal. Beautiful harbors and evergreens. Docks and tidal marshes with huge tidal shifts in the 10-13 foot range empty out and fill coves quickly. the colors in august when I held the workshop were super clear unless there was some fog in the morning. It'll usually burn off by 10 or so if there is some around. I don't particularly like to paint foggy scenes. Too monochromatic for my tastes.
Monhegan Island is the next workshop on tap for Maine and it'll be August 2015.
Looking forward to painting in Cuba in December and if you'd like to go, there's a spot or two left, but you'd have to get on the stick. Copies of passports need to be mailed and received in a week or so. Cost is about $4000 for everything. email me if you'd like to go. Guaranteed trip full of memories, this one!
