"Down East Village"

This painting came from a number of sketches and studies I made of numerous island harbors along the coast of Maine. It is a gathering from many sketches to make my ideal island village. Enjoy.

"Union Station, Portland, Maine, Remembered" circa 1936

A glowing night scene with businessmen arriving after a long day's work and shoppers returning from Boston.  All are greeted to fresh falling snow at Portland's Union Station. Portlanders still fondly remember this landmark which was dismantled in 1963. Some research went into this scene. I used a 1920's Reo for the bus, an early 1930's Ford for the smaller taxi and I turned my Grandmother's 1936 Pontiac into the far left taxi.  First in the Portland Series.
