Eastport Battery and Custom View


This is a watercolor pencil 5 by 7 on watercolor paper

that is cold pressed but still got some texture---how I

do not like it---only Moleskine pages feel right to

me and accept the color much better
There may be somebody over there on Campobello

Island, Canada, thinking the same as I am..

"this is weird to see another country so close yet

you have to drive quite a ways to go over

with a passport" Also with all the gulls

all over Eastport I can merrily add them

whenever I feel like it and that's the truth..:-)

You may not like the paper but this is really a beautiful painting! I especially like the gull - perfect touch! Glad to see you posting your wonderful art again!

I'm so used to your Moleskine pages, this was a little surprising. But it's still lovely, and still Winna!

I went to Eastport Maine for a change of scenery and inspiration and my computer was out of commission before that so it HAS been awhile---I appreciate the comments! Winna

This is a really cool view that you've put together. It makes me feel like I'm upstairs in a home/cottage looking out the window. I'm so glad you are back posting your art!!
