Hot summer days in Maine

Sea roses on my walk along the Casco Bay.

New bouquet for the table in my favorite lime green rubber vase.

Sketching potted flowers in front of one of the shops in Portland.
Using the rough watercolor paper that I bought years ago when I had no idea about watercolor paper.
Tried adding pastels to just to mix it up a bit.

This is Jazzy, the other of my two very large 13 year old cats.
She is usually sprawled on the floor like an area rug.

Oh Jennifer, I love, love your pictures of Maine so far !! I wish I was there with you the heat index here in Kansas City is way over 100. I so like your cat pictures. What a talent you are

I am enjoying seeing your Maine watercolors again. The painting of the bouquet in the lime green vase on that striped tablecloth is divine.

I love Jazzy! What a cool painting! I am also partial to the first flower painting. Love the way you shook it up with the pastel and rough paper on the third one - experimentation is good.

I'm here in Eastport Maine for the summer--not hot here--always a Bay Breeze it seems---how happy I am for that. I do love all your work and am breaking my rule of no emailing while here..because of an incident in Calais yesterdasy--I bought a beautiful purpleblue mix topper made by Kimberly's Travels---a woman the shop owner knew...the topper designer lives in Portland, is an artist, spends half the year in Bali, half in Maine...are there more than one talanted women doing this, such as you???? A friend of yours? I must say I am crazy about Jazzy's page!!! I am unable to send photos from here so no EDM work being done--but painting I do ....I will watch for more of your work to enjoy !
