Here on the Schoodic Peninsula, in the fall of 2015, we were given a wonderful gift: Schoodic Woods. The new trails and carriage roads they created allowed us to move deeper into this quietly beautiful peninsula. As I explored these trails throughout the fall, I was struck by how much the change of season altered what I saw. As a way to celebrate the Acadia Centennial, I pledged to paint one painting a month from the new trails of Schoodic Woods, following the seasons.
This is the painting I have done for the month of April. There is very little color out on the trails at this time and the sheep laurel stood out for me as they were still sporting their fall colors, nestled amongst the reindeer moss.
I am making photo notecards from the original paintings as well. All my work can be seen at Artisans and Antiques, 357 Main St, Winter Harbor, Maine.
5% of sales of these items will be donated to Friends of Acadia to support programs and education.
