A few weeks ago I was teaching a workshop in Damariscotta, and as I pulled into my parking place for the day I saw this cottage, barely standing up on the other side of the fence. I often seem to find fun, new views when I bring one of my classes to a site. I have only painted here a few times, but was still surprised by seeing this new composition. Even when I take a class to Rockport Harbor, where I have painted quite a bit, I still always see things freshly when I see the seen through student’s eyes. This is just one of the many benefits of teaching, and being taught by my students.
