(Pinned Post) June 2022 // In July, I'll be hitting the road on a 30-day road trip painting challenge. My ultimate destination is the beautiful state of Maine, where I grew up, but along the way, my travel partner and I will be stopping to hike and camp as we journey north from Florida.
Like many people, the pandemic caused me to rethink the way I travel. When air travel became complicated and stressful, my travel partner and I decided to invest in a camper van. With our own set of wheels, we can travel safely and independently, without the crowds. One of the best things about traveling by road is the ability to set our own pace. So, for this trip, we're taking things slow and really taking the time to explore the places we visit.
I've packed my travel tested painting kit and a bunch of supplies to be able to paint from my "mobile studio". I'll be criss-crossing the state of Maine from Moosehead to Monhegan to Kennebunkport. Every day I will paint something from the trip to document my journey.
I'm thrilled to see how this experiment unfolds, and how many paintings I'll be able to create. I'll be releasing this series for purchase to my subscribers, and if you sign up now, you can get 15% off when they become available this fall.
Our first stop is a cloudy, rainy, yet beautiful overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. You can check out my notes here to see the spot. And to follow along with me on this journey, be sure to check out the other posts on my art notes blog to see all the spots we stopped.
