1994 Kettle Cove

February, Kettle Cove, oil on board

February 1994 at Kettle Cove, Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Painted just a few months before we sold the house, quit our jobs and moved, with baby, to MDI, where I began to learn carpentry, plumbing and more by attempting to build a small house. NEVER DO THIS. just sayin’.
