Painting Nova Scotia

Cabot Trail, most iconic of drives.

Cabot Trail, most iconic of drives.

My husband and I made a trip to Nova Scotia last month.  Neither of us had been up that way.  It was so beautiful!  I took my painting materials but came home with enough subject matter to last for a long time.  We spent a week on Nova Scotia south shore, then toured the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton and finally ended on Prince Edward Island.  The weather was lovely with temps in the low seventies, dipping to the fifties and even forties at night.  Perfect for August, I think.

Here are the first few paintings, some painted on location, some back here at home.  Rugged shores, pines, ocean, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, quaint towns and fishing villages…what more could an artist want?  As always, I appreciate any feedback.

  1. Beautiful pieces of art! They are inviting me to travel there. I wish I can include Canada in some of my future posts as a travel blogger.
