A Palette of Luminous Blues

Seeing this kind of light reflecting in the water makes me long to be an artist.  

It's the kind of light that feeds an artist's obsession. 

It is easy to find little snippets of serenity to use as the subject of a beautiful painting.    


 Pretty pink against a backdrop of blue is always lovely too.   

Even the blueberries are perfectly timed to reflect the light of August.  

There seems to be an endless supply of subject matter everywhere you look.  

But this one of the sailboat masts reflecting in the water is one of my personal favorites.  

I can imagine how beautiful it would look in brush strokes on canvas.  So tell me because I am curious, which one of these could you easily envision as a painting?

July Into August

These gorgeous summer days are truly the time to savor life here in Maine.

The light and reflections in the water were meant to be photographed.  So here I am again with another post so soon after my long absence.

The last of the rosa rugosa blooms continue to hold my fascination.

 Along with any movement in the water.

It is both exciting and all at once equally peaceful and serene here too.

And just for your amusement, a sweet pup anticipating the thrill of a ride across the bay.  

A "Sorrento" take on what is typically known as the dog days of summer.
