Waterman's Beach Lobster!












David Dewey's finished watercolor.
We go off to paint
And I...
Go off to eat...
Seeking refuge from the sun at Waterman's Beach Lobster...
I only admired the strawberry-rhubarb pies...
Crit time with David at 4...
Melissa Granger painted my lobster!
Madeleine Boucher painted the seascape...
Shirley Cook's thumbnail...
Shirley Cook's finished painting reminded me of this Sir William Russell Flint beach painting on the cover...
Shirley's mini paintbox! No wonder.



Bob Schweizer got the boat perfectly.
Kathe McCoy's thumbnails nail it.My thumbies...

My finished painting (after 3 re-dos)...
If you go to Waterman's Beach whatever you do, do NOT MISS the
ROUND TOP ICE CREAM!!! mon deux I tried coffee, ginger, black raspberry.

Later on at the Farnsworth museum - this Alex Katz painting. Was he at Waterman Beach Lobsters too?


BONJOUR WATERMAN BEACH'S LOBSTER!

  8. I'd love to be in Maine eating a grilled cheese, sipping a pink lemonade and having strawberry rhubarb pie. That cream does sound divine! It looks so beautiful there.

    First...I LOVE your watercolors! I plan to order some when I redo my kitchen!
    Also...just wondering if you know who does that darling song on the Cafe de Flore video? I love it, but cannot for the life of me find it! Any ideas?
    Thanks a million...
    and keep painting those beautiful paintings!

    Carol, I enjoy PB so much, and especially your annual summer treat of David Dewey's painting workshop. Seeing all those watercolors inspires me to get back to painting again. Thanks for a consistently entertaining,
    inspiring peek into your enchanted life.

  19. I LOVED LOVED LOVED Melissa Granger's painting of the lobster still life.
    I wonder if she was there when I was?
    She sounds familiar-
