Painting Plein Air at Two Lights

Two Lights State Park is one of my favorite places to go here in Maine. It's a stone's throw from our house and is often quiet and lots of space to spread out. Today I was a bit nervous about being swept from the rocks by a rogue wave, and sort of wishing there were a few more people around to keep an eye on me.

Birches


We had what-I-hope-to-be the last snow storm last week, just before we left for Easter. It was shocking to wake up to see everything covered in snow, but by mid-morning the sun was out and the snow was on the run. I had been looking at this small group of birch trees all winter long. I especially like the shadows as they fell across the snow. They were even more interesting now that the snow was melting. I got set up as fast as I could and by the time I was ready to call it a day, the remaining snow only hugged the very base of the trees. 
I still have a bit more work to do on both, but I like where they're heading.
