Little did I realize how far this would be going when I painted this first piece in public on top of Mt. Battie in Maine. At that time I thought I would do 3 to 5 pieces. Now there are 18 in the exhibit (still on display at tthe Topsfield Library) and I have completed two since the exhibit opened. And I am still painting.
