Ode to Belfast

For the past 25 years I’ve lived in Belfast, Maine, a small town on the coast of the Penobscot Bay. I recently spent many days and months painting one of my favorite views, beyond Steel’s Ledge, towards Islesboro, Castine and Blue Hill.  Returning to nearly the same place each day, I watched the shifting, turning seas and skies and newly connected with both the sea and my town. This series of small paintings is the beginning of my Ode To Belfast…
