Maine. One of the consequences of a major relocation is that time and energy for activities like painting is spent elsewhere. Late last year we made the decision to leave Florida and return to New England where we have spent so many years of our lives. In addition, most of our family is currently located in the Northeast.

Everything happened quite quickly--we made the decision to vacate the home and stay with family in Maine until we land in Vermont. Within two weeks of that decision, we were gone. So, currently we're in Kennebunkport, Maine while our home in Tampa, Florida is under contract and hopefully will be sold before the end of June. We have started the project of looking for a new home.

In the meantime, the show must go on. Our quarters in Maine are on the small side, so rather than set up an easel and take down an easel every time I want to paint, with family assistance we cleaned out what used to be the tack room of a horse barn on the property (photo above.) Except for days like today, where the temperature is peaking at 50 degrees, it is a great place to paint.

Here's to an exciting period of time ahead. Also, I am fortunate that three of my paintings have been hung in the Northlight Gallery on Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport. What a nice welcome back to New England!
