Maine Rocks, 6x12 acrylic painting by Kelley MacDonald


Right about now I'm visiting Pemmaquid Light House.  These rocks were painted with a cast of thousands (felt like) standing behind me.  A big bus load of people emptied out and they thought this was part of the Tour. :)

Well, many left when I painted the whole canvas magenta.  ("She doesn't know what she's doing....")  And the way I painted it, I blocked in huge abstract shapes at first.  Then I went in and added depth, detail, strong values, color.  When I look at this I can hear the pounding of the tide on the rocks.  Yes, Maine Rocks. xo

  1. Maine rocks? Indeed! Gorgeous, Kelley!!

  2. Beautiful, Kelley! I can hear the waves hitting the rocks, too. I also feel the wind and
    smell the salt water. Glad you are having fun!

  3. I love how you described what the onlookers must have been thinking. I hope you really didn't overhear anyone say that. Anyway, you certainly do know what you are doing and it's lovely.

  4. Wow, lovely painting. I love it.


Awww THANKS for leaving a comment! You KNOW I love to hear from you!
