My bedroom at Primrose Cottage overlooked the ocean, and it was wonderful opening my eyes every morning and seeing this scene, with the ocean right outside my windows.
Tuesday was a rainy day, but it turned out to be one of our favorites. Snug and cozy in our cute little house, we painted the day away.
When the sun came out on Wednesday, we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day, and what better place to enjoy it than on top of Mount Battie? That's Candy, one of my students, in the picture, sketching the panoramic view of Penobscot Bay and the town of Camden.
Just before we left to head back down the mountain, I painted this quick cloud study. The sun and wind were drying the paint almost instantly, so it was challenging but still fun.
I still have a few more pages to finish in my travel journal - I'll be sure to share them with you soon.
