"Summer Phlox"

Mount Desert Island, Maine

"Summer Phlox" is an original watercolor painting by Beth Whitney featuring a rustin barn on Mount Desert Island, Maine.

This happy painting shows a weathered old barn with a beautiful golden field edged with Summer Phlox (one of the most glorious wildflowers). My favorite details are the red geraniums in the windows and the wagon wheel below. The geraniums are actually inspired by the Olson House in Cushing (made famous by Andrew Wyeth). It's a wonderful scene.

The physical barn is in Salsbury Cove, next to the Stone Barn (I employed significant artistic license with building placement/removal).  You can see the edge of this barn in my "Stone Barn on Crooked Road" painting.

My Landscapes Gallery has more paintings of Mount Desert Island and other locations in Maine.
