A summer day on the coast of Maine

I needed a break from painting so a felt pen and colored pencils seemed like a easy sketch solution. A quick sketch of the ship channel at the end of the street along with the ubiquitous seagull, a visit with my friend Mary for a glass of wine while sketching her grandaughter Haisel and delicious tuna steaks from the big winning tournament tuna.

Looking across the Casco Bay ship channel towards Peaks Island at the 
end of the street

At my friend Mary's house with her two cute grandaughters running around. 
Hard to capture a fast moving 3 year old who was also critiquing my work.

Mary's son Jack was part of the crew that caught this monster 586 lb tournament winning tuna.

"No Dogs Allowed"

May through September in Maine, dogs are not allowed on the beaches except at wonderful Willard Beach where the dogs run free 7-9 am and 7-9 pm. Sophie loves that we live at Willard Beach because there is lots of seaweed to roll in!!!
