It was a carriage house that we converted to the gallery - RVPainter did all the shingling, which of course looked newer back then and we put in that door. We always had tubs of flowers outside to make it look pretty. I had gotten this old ladder back chair with a hole in the seat, and put a pot of flowers in the hole. It was really cute. I loved doing stuff like that. Now I think the owners probably use this as a guest cottage.
And here's the barn - I was taking the photo into the sun with my Iphone so it's not that great. You can see the back porch of the house too, somewhat hidden behind all the foliage. The barn is about 150 years old - older than the house actually - the house was built in 1892.
We spent ALL DAY up at Pemaquid Point in Pemaquid, Maine, and it could not have been a more spectacular day. We set up our little beach chairs overlooking the rocks. RVPainter did a sketch and started a painting, and I did a little writing and a lot of meditating and looking at the ocean.
For two dollars a person, you can spend all day there and also you can tour the light-keeper's house and go up into the lighthouse. Back when we had the gallery, RVPainter did many paintings of Pemaquid Light and I have to say they were some of the best paintings of that lighthouse that I've ever seen and I'm not just saying that because he's, well, you know, RVPainter.
That's the lightkeeper's house - the lighthouse is behind it. Geez, can't believe I didn't get it in the picture!
That's RVPainter working on his painting
That's the view from where I parked my beach chair. I did NOT want to leave there today - it was such a glorious day as you can see from the color of the ocean and sky.
