First Sunrise in Maine

Our journey has begun to find the right place to hold art retreats. I'm on the boardwalk in Rockland Maine ... just down the street from our rental for this month. We have looked at 8 properties so far. 3 we want to look at with realtor. So much to see. The day is just beginning and it is a beautiful one! Enjoy yours wherever you are.

    1. Yes we love it here. It's been emotional to leave our home of 26 years and family back in Ohio. So we will see if this is where we really want to be for this next stage of life!

  3. Deb,I saw your post on the DLP and decided to check your blog. I visited Maine 2 years ago to take a plien air painting workshop with Liz Wiltzen lizwiltzen.blogspot.com. We were outside the whole time except for a few hours the first day when she introduced herself and went over the goals for the class. I think it was about $300 for the two days of teaching. Then we had expenses of hotel, meals and travel. I usually budget about $1000 for these shorter painting trips. It is hard to spend that much on just yourself, but so important for women to take a break and give themselves a gift of art for a few days. I think you could offer special packages and leave blocks of time for people to just relax one their own, work in the studio, or take an outdoor adventure with you. I think being outside is a good break from the studio, which is why I love plien air painting so much. I would pay extra to go sailing or kayaking. Good luck with your search for a place. My husband and I just relocated to Cape Cod, MA and we are waiting to see what God has for us here.
