"Pemaquid Sparkles"

Bristol, Maine

Watercolor painting of Great Head and Sand Beach in Acadia National Park Maine by artist Beth Whitney | Downeast Watercolors

"Pemaquid Sparkles" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

The ocean shimmers with late afternoon sunshine and swirling surf off Pemaquid Point.  While most people are turned and facing the Pemaquid lighthouse, I took a moment to get a clear view of the dramatic water and light.  Isn't it wonderful how light dances on the surface of the water? 

The Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is located in Bristol, all the way down Rt 129/130 from Damariscotta.  I encourage you to loop around New Harbor and go up the other side of the peninsula as well.  There are so many wonderful communities and views here. 

My Seascapes Gallery has more dynamic watercolor paintings of Acadia National Park and other coastal locations.

The pictures below will help you visualize the matted painting and give you ideas for choosing a frame. I recommend taking it with you when you go frame shopping so you can test drive several profiles and find one that speaks to you.
