My son is vacationing in Maine with some of his buddies — a well deserved vacation after graduation. I wish I was there, in Maine that is. I took an art trip cruise there four few years ago with my mother. Now that I think about it that was at the start of Piers’ college days and this is at the end, so very fitting he should be able to enjoy it for himself.
It’s a state I had never spent much time in before that trip. My son just called to describe what I found so charming about it as well. It’s a peaceful, beautiful get away where you can enjoy incredible seafood, hiking, and the ocean – all the bounties of Nature - as well as the incredible light, it just cannot be put into words, but no wonder so many artists flock here.
All my links for Maine murals have unfortunately disappeared but here’s a seaport one that I really like and saw while I was in Portland + I’ve seen this view from the park at the top of Portland + a lovely sealife ocean murals in the lobby of Texas A&M’s Ocean and Coastal Studies Building.
