"Orange" blueberries & Maine art

We just returned home from our 
little vacation to Maine.
There were so many memorable sights
which are all far better in my minds eye
than what came out of my  Kodak
but i still want to share some of them with you!
 we took a day trip to Campobello Island in Canada
and  loved this gorgeous tree!
I got a kick out of 
this Copper Moose Head on a house 
outside of EastPort ME

and this heavy metal woman
was in a parking lot of a business
in EastPort
i think the same artisan who made the moose
created her too don't you?

One of my favorite sights
are the colorful Blueberry Barrens!
After harvest, they change color
into flaming orange and red!
This picture is of a field that is
beginning to turn color

and this field along RT1
is almost there!

As soon as I'm caught up on all the work,
mainly laundry,  I'm going to do some
paintings in acrylic of the fields.

But here is a watercolor i did
after seeing them last year
which just so happens to work for 
Blueberry Field after Harvest

  5. Hi Diane, I thought I'd stop by and check if you ever received your Love's Disposition tags. I never heard back from you and I wondered because I mailed them on Oct. 5. If you have please send me a not via email or blog.
    Thank you.
