Mount Desert Island, Acadia, Maine

Original Watercolor Painting on Paper

$ 1300
This watercolor painting of old wooden dories in Seal Cove, Maine shows the simple elegance of the boats' design. Dories are flat bottom, wood planked boats perfected in New England fishing towns. I love seeing the strings of dories, piled high with nets, ready to go out on the next tide.

I saw several strings of dories on my first trip, years ago, to Acadia. The last trip, all I found was this solitary line of dories in a peaceful part of Seal Cove.

There's something about wooden boats that I just have to paint. Reflections are different than modern fiberglass, softer and more interesting. The lines are simpler and more beautiful. If I ever see a modern fiberglass boat that's beautiful, it's always a very direct adaption of a older classic wooden boat!

A simple string of dories hidden in a quiet Maine cove, a glimpse back in time. Red and white boats with colorful tarps and bright orange floats. Seal Cove Dories is a painting of a beautiful, simple subject. The old fishing dories are fast disappearing from our quiet coves, but I will paint every one I see until then!
