Ocean Edge Cottage In Maine

The size of this oil painting is 24x36 inches...a bit large for my painting standards. I had done a few smaller paintings of this scene , and they had sold. One of them... the first one, won Best of Show at The Newburyport Art Association down in Massachusetts back in 2001... So I figured that I would try a larger painting just for the hell of it. I would use much larger brushes and much more paint ... it turned out that I was happy with the finished painting ... it was hanging up at the gallery in Kennebunkport, Maine for about two seasons, and then it was sold. I was happy.
Lately I've come across other artists rendition of this scene .... it's a wonderful view at this spot.
Just around the bend in the road you'll come upon the Bush Compound. That is George Bush seniors oceanside summer retreat at Walkers Point.

Obviously the colors in this are very nice, but a person thing for me is the composition. It kicks ass. This is a painting I come back to. To enjoy and learn from.
