Return to Campobello Island and Some Paintings


"Sugar Maple" 9x12 Oil by Michael Chesley Johnson
Nashville, Brown County, Indiana
Available
Our nearly month-long road trip came to an end yesterday.  We arrived on Campoello Island, New Brunswick, to find everything in good order--until we turned on the water and found a leak.  Fortunately, we were able to track down a plumber quickly to fix things.  Now, we are settling in and unpacking, raking up leaves and uncovering the tulips and hostas.  Although the trees are still bare, the daffodils are yellow and radiant, and the grass is greening--and growing--quickly.  Once this blog post is done, I'll fire up the lawnmower for the first mowing of the season.

Now that we're back, I've had a chance to image some of the paintings I did on this trip.  I thought I'd present them here.  Some are sold, some are still available.

By the way, I still have some room in my Acadia Workshop Center plein air painting workshop, August 21-24.  I've taught this workshop for nearly 15 years, and I still love it.  Based on Mount Desert Island's "quiet side" off the Maine coast and near Acadia National Park, the workshop has a great studio space for critiques and is close to lodging, beautiful painting spots, and Thurston's Lobster Pound.  For full details:  http://www.acadiaworkshopcenter.com/MCJohnson.html
