Dusk on Oakwoods Road

I have been told that Stephen King lived here in North Berwick a few years back . He did mention the old mill in "Needfull Things". This abandoned farmhouse and barns is out on Oakwoods Road. He could have written about this place for sure. It got very quiet as dusk approached and the abandoned old cars in the overgrown weeds in the woods and the way the last rays of sun caught the window panes making it look like a bank of shoplights in the upstairs room. I even made the sound of a chainsaw to my friend as we painted. Ol' Leatherface could have come out the side door at any time.... 10 x 12" in oil on canvas panel.

Lobster Boat off Lane's Cove

This is an acrylic worked up from a gray day at Lane's Cove. It was done in the studio today.The painting is 4 5/16 x 7 7/8 . When I was painting at Lane's Cove, I forgot to consider the flood tide by the wall. I got trapped for awhile and the water came up over my shoes . I had to set up on the rocks to stay dry. My pals got a kick out of that of course... This view was out past the wall. I liked the mood to the sky and the tones of the boat.
