Lunging and Malaga from Smuttynose Island, 12 x 16″, watercolor, 2022, $900, unframed.

This view is looking east, with Rye, New Hampshire way off on the horizon. The old worn and broken breakwater, seen here between Smuttynose and Malaga, will be rebuilt by the Army Corps of Engineers in the next year or two.

Mt. Washington from the End of Iron Mountain Road, 12 x 16″, watercolor, 2021, $900, unframed.

If you drive all the way up Iron Mountain Road, off Rt. 16 in Jackson, NH, you eventually come to a well-kept old farm with a spectacular view. Behind this viewpoint is the hiking trail up Iron Mountain. Where you’ll find an old fire tower and, yes, an iron mine.

View from Badger’s Island, 12″ x 16″, watercolor, 2022, $900, unframed.

Back in the previous century, I lived for ten years on Badger’s Island, at a place with more or less this view of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. For this recent watercolor I visited the old neighborhood, and sat down in the seaweed while the tide came in. A local cat came down to say hi while I painted.

Powderhouse Hill, 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, watercolor, 2016, $400, matted and framed.

Powderhouse Hill is a tiny ski hill and sliding area just north of downtown South Berwick. It’s run by volunteers who open the warming hut and crank up the rope tow when the snow is good. A wonderful place to take your kids. And you can hike it (400 steps, bottom to top) when the tow isn’t running. So it’s a great spot to hit at the tail end of a big storm.
