It's A Perfect Day in Maine

I'm in Maine on vacation with my mother, sister, niece, and good-friend-who's-like-a-sister, and we're having the BEST time! We're staying in a pretty house in Owls Head, just south of Rockland in mid-coast Maine. The weather has been amazing - the air is crisp and clear and everything is so gorgeous I can hardly stand it! I can't believe I only have a week here - I could happily stay all summer.

Thought I'd share a sketch I finished this morning...

I'll have lots more to show you when I get home. Now I'm off to hunt for sea glass (I'm obsessed with it!), then walk to the Owls Head General Store for the best hamburger in the state of Maine (officially designated as such by the Food Network!), then maybe go sketching at Crescent Beach while the tide is out. Then it will be time for a glass of wine on the deck as we watch the lobster boats return to the harbor at the end of the day. And I might not be able to resist one more walk on the beach at sunset to see if the tide brought in any more sea glass. I just know that perfect piece is waiting for me out there!

I'll check in with you when I'm home again - till then, relax and enjoy this beautiful summer!
