Pitcher Plants along the Buck Cove Mt Trail, Schoodic Woods – July

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 my painting for the month of July. It is of a stand of pitcher plants beside the Buck Cove Mt trail. It was a beautiful warm day as I sat in the bog and painted. Not a soul came by, but I was visited by many insects as they were lured into this carnivorous plant.

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
