Work in Progress Foggy Harbor Fisherman Original Painting by Sandra Estes

Today's Work In Progress

Heavy morning fog loomed over Bar Harbor, Maine.  I saw a lone fisherman sitting on the dock, and immediately thought the scene would make a great painting.  The fisherman kindly agreed to let me photograph him.

Vintage Airstream Travel Trailer Camper Caravan Original Painting by Sandra Estes

5 x 7"

Ah!  Camping under the stars in a vintage Airstream Travel Trailer in a summer landscape.  This painting describes camping on a warm summer night, close to nature, with mountains in the distance, under a starry night sky. The landscape and a nearby tree are illuminated by the light of the full moon and the inviting warm glow streaming out from within the cozy little camper.

I now have prints, framed prints, canvas prints, and greeting cards available of this painting, on my new website: Sandra Estes Fine Art .

I love going up the coast of Maine.  I did this painting using some photos I took while visiting Bar Harbor Maine for reference.  On Mount Desert Island, I watched and took photos as a couple of lobstermen in Northeast Harbor, loaded lobster traps onto their boat and headed out of the Harbor.

This painting is sold to a collector in Maine.
