New Painting Of Seal Harbor Bridge / Acadia & Carriage Horses

The second bridge that an equine experience in Acadia provides you is Seal Harbor Bridge….a bridge that the horses actually go under and that cars drive over. This bridge always seems to me to be our portal to the magic that is Acadia. Our first Acadia drive is always under this bridge and over to Little Long Pond……So beautiful…..The air filled with the woodland scents of fir, cedar, pine and fern. The moss covered forest rug cover the landscape and the coping stones lining the carriage roads, draw the horses and carriage along. I will NEVER tire of this. Our horses love trotting along the gravel packed roads, eager to see what is past the next corner. It is like heaven. I will NEVER tire of painting this experience, and hopefully my paintings will help other enjoy the feeling of trotting along carriage roads, as if in another place and time. A slower and gentler time.  My new casein painting is now available on my website. More works to come.
 
 
 


So between carriage rides……I will be painting.
