"Shore Path, Bar Harbor" (sold)

Mount Desert Island, Maine

Painting of Shore Path in Bar Harbor, Maine by artist Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

"Shore Path" is an original watercolor painting by Beth Whitney featuring the famed tow path in Bar Harbor, Maine.


Shore Path is one of Bar Harbor's prettiest features. It has a fascinating history with gorgeous old cottages from the Gilded Age, views looking out over the islands in Frenchman's Bay, roses everywhere, and it takes you from the town pier back to the heart of the village.

From the perspective in the painting above, the Bar Harbor Inn is just on the left, built on the site of Birch Point, one of the first cottages in Bar Harbor. Bar Island is the island just ahead on the right.
