March in Maine always seems to be...

...gray, cold, windy and rainy

at the beach

in the fields

at the tidal marshes

and in the city

but warm and cozy by the fire.

These are delightful, Jennifer--what a nice variety of media. The top painting is how I picture Maine; and I love the painting of the field--beautiful colors, so crisp!

If a travel agent gets hold of these, Maine will be flooded with March tourists, for you have made brown beautiful :-)

Yes, you have made it beautiful! The sea, the marshes, the fields ... even the town looks lovely! Very well done.

Beautiful sketches. Your puppy looks very happy to be inside & warm. The rest of the week here in NH is looking really nice - 50 degrees + and no rain. Yeah!

Your mark making is wonderful on these Jen. Love the street scene and the two washes blending together.

Oh, you just keep getting better and better all the time, Jennifer. That top one is awesome. It's SO Maine. And they're each so beautiful in their own way. Lovely. You'll have glorious color soon.

The blues and reds add so much richness to the browns. These are lovely sketches! I love the deep colors and the compositions.

Beautiful sketches. The last one made me smile. I understand about cold and gray. PA winters are like that, too. But, I really love these sketches. Those browns with the blue sky. Such contrast is so pleasing to the eye.

Much the same here - but I could not make it look as picturesque as this!

Oh Jennifer, these are fabulous, such an accurate relay of the March temptations and tribulatins - Hope you get a nice warm weekend like we expect here in CT.

Gorgeous sketches! I especially like the one of fields, such beautiful, rich color.

Beautiful as always, and there are so many different styles! You are very accomplished, and I love to visit your blog. The city one - what can I say! I love the spare use of color, and the way the lovers melt into each other..
