30 Days/30 Paintings Challenge & Road Trip Stops; Discovering Maine's Natural Beauty

30 Days/30 Paintings Challenge & Road Trip Stops; Discovering Maine's Natural Beauty

In 2022, I challenged myself to create a series of paintings in Maine that captured the essence of nature and the theme of "escape". Instead of the crowded tourist spots, I sought out hidden gems that would allow me to capture the breathtaking beauty of Maine's natural landscapes in a new and inspiring way.

From lush forests to breathtaking coastlines, I love with the stunning scenery that Maine had to offer. The diversity of landscapes and the challenge of capturing their beauty and color in paint was both humbling and inspiring.

If you'd like to see what I created during my artistic exploration, click on the links below to view my art from each location. I'll be adding more pieces as they're completed, including plein air paintings from the trip and studio works created both during and after the trip.

Join me on this journey of discovery and see what can be achieved when you venture off the beaten path and allow yourself to be inspired by the natural world:
