Portrait of Roger

This is a 16 x 12 inch portrait of my husband, Roger.  It is hard to say when a portrait is finally "done".  There are always many changes one can make.  This is the current stage of my attempt to capture Roger's persona on canvas.

Boothbay, Maine, early morning light and mist

Two paintings of a Maine farm and marsh near Booth Bay, Maine.  The early morning light inspired me to paint these two paintings.  The barn and the marsh are on opposite sides of the country road.

Late Fall in the White Mountains

Last weekend I painted this at a plein air workshop taught by Stapelton Kearns in Sugar Hill, NH.  It is the product of a two hour painting session in the bitter cold on a cloudy afternoon.  Usually, I continue to work on a plein air painting later in my studio.  Perhaps, I should leave this one alone and let the experience of that day remain on the canvas?
