This was painted on location on a little stretch of beach in Camden, ME, down the hill and down a flight of old wooden steps from our motel. We had the beach all to ourselves for a couple of hours that July morning. Of course the light changed and the tide changed in the time it took me to paint this, and I kept changing the painting to try to keep up. It's not a masterpiece, but it is the first painting I ever painted in Maine so it's kind of special to me. Over the next few months, I'll post many more paintings done from photos taken on that trip. Something about the Atlantic just keeps me coming back.
