Summer 2022 Painting Challenge Stops

Summer 2022 Painting Challenge Stops

(Pinned Post) // When I put together the list of locations for this painting challenge, I wanted to stay off the beaten trail, stick with nature, and stay within the theme of "escape." I love the places I chose and feel I had a diverse and inspiring, thoroughly MAINE artistic exploration in 2022.

Click the links below to see the art I am developing for each location. As more works are completed and photographed (both plein air pieces from the trip and studio pieces from during and post trip), I will add them here. See below:
