August Newsletter

Hi! Welcome to my newsletter! As you will see I have added  some things and deleted some things and created a new portfolio of 9 of my best new images that best represent the direction I am going in.

Yesterday, I received 6 – 24×36 inch canvases that will be on display at the Thompson Public Library in Dover-Foxcroft Maine for the entire month of September as I have been chosen by them as their artist of the month. If you are able to attend please leave a comment in the comments book. Thanks!

Also in September is the Western Mountain Photo Show in Rangeley Maine! I have provided a link below if you are interested in attending! I will be their on Saturday night for the awards show at 7pm. Any questions let me know at mainelandscapes!


On a positive note, I have sold my first canvas this year at Gallery on the Lake called “Spring Foliage”! Very exciting. Thanks to the owner Becky for giving me the opportunity to display my work in Piscataquis Counties best gallery located at 35 Pritham Avenue in Greenville, Maine. For more information visit

So, to end, you may have noticed that my photographic style is changing, not because I am using photo editing software or selling out, same thing, but because I have been shooting landscapes since 2007 and it is time for a change. So I will continue to experiment because that’s what artists do! Here is an example. Thanks for reading my blog.
