Midcoast Maine

"Birches," weathered barn landscape painting by Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

"Birches" is an original watercolor painting by Maine artist Beth Whitney.

A shady stand of white paper birches flanks a rustic old weathered barn.  I love the light on this painting - it's cool and shady under the trees, but warm and summery around the barn. The dappled light from the birches really adds movement and life to the scene. The purple flowers in the front are monkshood. This barn is located in midcoast Maine, near Waldoboro.

Giclee prints are available in several sizes through my shop on Etsy.

My Landscapes Gallery has more paintings of barns and other landscape scenes.

Watercolor on paper, 2017
Image size: 8x12" | Final size: 12x16"

This painting includes a double white Crescent Select archival mat and FoamCor backing board. 

I offer natural hardwood and contemporary silver metal frames. Both are minimal and look beautiful with watercolors. I may have other mat/frame options available. Frames include conservation grade, non-glare, UV Acrylite glazing. This is lightweight, doesn't break easily, and adds protection from the sun's harmful rays.

Purchasing a matted painting enables you to be creative with choosing a frame to match your personal decor/taste.  Buy the frame, wash the glass, add the art, attach wire, and you're ready to display or gift. It's really not hard.  Framed paintings are ready to hang upon receipt.

Whether you choose to buy your painting with or without a frame really depends how involved you want to be in the process. Either way, I'm happy to answer any questions and offer advice.
