"The Carrying Place"

Downeast, Maine

Painting of The Carrying Place in Brooklin, Maine by artist Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

"The Carrying Place" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney.

A sunny carrying place offers views of a lovely stream meandering through the trees on its way to the sea. The fresh spring leaves, grass, and little white flowers are so happy. The view is right off of Route 1 in Downeast Maine, near Machias.

Wouldn't you love to get in your kayak and explore? This is actually a tidal inlet (not freshwater).  If you followed it to the right, you'd be looking at the ocean. Maine is full of portages like this.

My Landscapes Gallery has more paintings of lush trees and pastoral scenes.

The original has sold, but I have giclee prints available.
