Christmas Cove, 20x24, Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald


This painting was inspired by a visit to Christmas Cove (Bristol?) Maine, on my recent trip.  I love the pine trees clinging to the rocks, with barely a toe hold on a small grassy area.  Off to the right is the passage, by larger islands, to the open ocean.  Reminds me of 'kick back time', and Maine's motto, "The Way Life Should Be..."  What's not to love?

This painting is hanging at The Art Stable Gallery in Westport, MA - which, BTW has tons of new work hanging - I must say it's a great summer to be in that gallery!
