Appledore Gull

copyright 2009 Hannah Phelps
oil on canvas, 8" x 10"

A few years ago I spent a few days painting on Appledore Island, one of a group of islands off the coast of the Maine and New Hampshire border known as the Isles of Shoals. It rained quite a bit during my stay, but I painted as much as I could, sometimes settling for the view out the windows of the lab building we artists were using as a studio. This gull might have been sick of fighting the weather as well, since he huddled up near the window long enough for me to paint him.
