Starting to think about Maine -- updated

This is the time of year when thoughts of Maine are running through my head all the time.  The Bass Harbor lighthouse is a favorite place to visit and it's approached down a path that leads to the ocean. You can see the top of the beacon and the roof of the lighthouse through the trees.  I am just starting this painting -- there's a lot of the ground color showing through and some smearing of paint as I was getting the sketch down on the canvas -- but the basics are there.   I'll give it the rest of the weekend to dry and come back to it next week to build up the paint.

just starting this painting, more work to come
