The Marginal Way at Perkins Cove, Ogunquit, ME - watercolor

Ogunquit is a Naddick Indian word meaning "beautiful place by the sea". And so it is. Many people spend part of their summer at this lovely spot in southern Maine. I've enjoyed doing a sidewalk art show every August in its quaint downtown just a few steps from the beach. Last summer a local gallery owner asked me if I would put my work in her seasonal gallery, so last week I took a trip to Ogunquit bearing lots of paintings. She took them all to sell this summer!
Then, I took a walk along the Marginal Way, a hilly footpath that travels along the ocean. This paintings is a scene from that walk. You can see the blue-gray waters of the North Atlantic surging in to crash on the rocks in the foreground and a jumble of oceanside houses in the distance. A few years ago, the Marginal Way was almost totally destroyed in a storm. But with the support of locals and visitors, it is now restored for everyone to enjoy.
If you take a trip to Ogunquit this summer, take a walk along the Marginal Way. Then stop in to see Whitney Ott at Art & Soul Gallery. Tell her Janet sent you!
