Two Beautiful August Days in Stonington, Maine

What I love most about Deer Isle/Stonington are the myriad of transformations of light and weather one can see in a given day. These photos were taken over a period of 2 days mostly at Sand Beach in August. The weather went from fog, to sun,to rain, to sun, to mist. This is heaven for an artist! Stay tuned, some of these maybe future paintings…

Newest Watercolor:

Forest Jewels,  25"x27",Watercolor, Marjorie Glick, 2012

This, my most recent watercolor represents the beginning of a series of
paintings that explore the intimate details that enhance ones experience of a place.  I was talking to some of my students the other day and we were looking at the question: What is your painting about? What compels you to paint a particular image? For me, before I decide to paint something, I reflect on why I want to paint it, what am I trying to convey,and what moves me about a particular image. I think this reflection gives the painting focus and clarity.

This painting for me, is about my experience of being in the forest, just being there, and taking in what is close at hand. It is also about conveying the experience of being in a place where time falls away and there is room to daydream, and let your mind drift to nothing at all but colors, textures and pieces of shadow.When I was a child, I spent a lot of time in the woods at my "secret" place which was really just a patch of exceptionally soft  green moss near an old abandoned foundation. I remember looking closely at that moss and noticing its intimate details, lush color, fallen leaves, twigs, and texture.
Even today, when I think about what moss looks like, I refer to my experience of these woods from childhood.These days, the woods I visit most frequently, are in Deer Isle, Maine.

A Glorious Day of Painting at the June Color and Light Watercolor Workshop in Stonington:

Color and Light, was a workshop geared towards intermediate/advanced students that I just finished teaching in Stonington Maine. We had a fantastic week painting- I couldn't have asked for a nicer, more talented group of artists for this workshop. We painted a lot, enjoyed one another's company, immersed ourselves in the beautiful (and colorful!) surroundings and the weather was gorgeous!
One of the 5 days, we painted at Mariners Park. It was one of 5 glorious days:

 The field at Mariners Park was filed with lupines, daisies, indian paint brush, and buttercups. There is a spaciousness to the meadow, combined with the undulating hills, water view and beach, butterflies and birds that all combined to make this an incredibly peaceful spot.

There were many views like this one, all throughout. The sky was constantly changing from sun to cloud, blue to white to lavender and colorful painters dotted the hillside! Below is Jane, Paula, and Donna.

Frederica hard at work!

David, Ellen, Dianne, and Edward
found the perfect spot: This ridge by the water covered in lupines and daisies.

This is what they were painting!

Paula in Lupine Heaven!
