Some brand-new cards along with old favorites of mine are on sale for a one-day only pop-up market at the Deer Isle Artists Association from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday, December 1 at the DIAA Gallery.
I’ve been wanting to paint a snow scene of Stonington for a long time, so this fall I buckled down and painted this watercolor of the town from the harbor.
I made cards of the painting, which are on sale at the pop-up market.
Cindy Bourque-Simonds, DIAA’s most tireless board member, runs the pop-up market by herself. “This is a different kind of a show for us, because many of our artists are trying something new and pricing them as affordable gifts,” she said for the official press release.
New Oil Paintings
For me, something new is an oil painting of the kayak launch at the Wooden Boat School in Brooklin, Maine.
That, too, is on sale at the pop-up market, along with a small oil painting of my friend Leslie Anderson. We painted together last fall on the top of Kezar Mountain in Little Deer Isle. As you can see I painted it loosely, which was quite fun.
Next on my agenda: I have some big — for me at least — wooden panels. They’re two feet by three feet, and I plan to finish them over the winter.
