Chairs at Popham Beach
23×30 inches, watercolor, pastel on watercolor paper
Popham Beach is great, but the water never gets above 57 degrees Fahrenheit. I have had many adventures here, including the black seals near the river thinking Barkley the Great Dane who was not allowed in the park (we tried putting a raincoat on him but he got caught) was a seal with legs. Their profiles were similar, but…. Anyway, the chairs on the left center are an “odd couple,” as you can see. So often we have called this painting by that name. When it was first shown on the web someone who lives there wrote saying it was terrible to commercially exploit Popham Beach. Oh well, here it is anyway!
