Footpath through the Bog – September

Product Information:

Description:

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 for September. I painted it last fall when I first decided to do this project. I was walking along one of the newly opened foot paths and came across this section with red moss and dying fern lining the boardwalk. It was a wonderful place to sit and be still as I had just seen a fox a short while earlier.

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
