Gotta Love It!
I told myself that I would not use this post to discuss the weather here in Maine. I mean, nobody wants to read about how this "spring" has been unusually cloudy, rainy and cold. That since April first we've been rained on forty out of forty-six days. How shallow is it of me to complain about ceaseless drizzle when there's flooding in the midwest, and massive destruction from tornados in the south? So I won't mention that today it's raining for the third straight day. Enough said. Or that the temperature has yet to crest seventy degrees yet this season. OK, I'll stop whining.
But according to the Weather Channel's ten day forecast, we're looking at ten straight days of rain with temps around fifty.
I mean it, I'm done now. I've got it all out of my system.
Wait! Look out my studio window... What's that I see?

What I wanted to mention is that last week a very nice person and wonderful sketch artist from the UK named Katherine Tyrell asked me to contribute to her blog series called Places To Paint with a few words about Maine. So, gentle reader, if you want to know what I said, please go to her blog Places To Paint and I'll give you a tour of what I actually like about painting here. Here's a hint:
