Barred Island is an energetic watercolor seascape print that captures the rhythms of the surf in Sunset, Maine. The wet rocks look like jasper as they glisten in the sun.

Barred Island is my favorite preserve in Deer Isle. It’s truly magical – you walk through the lush, verdant woods for awhile, and then out to a sandy beach. This vantage point shows the island (connected by a tidal sandbar) and East Penobscot Bay. It’s a wonderful place to take in the changes in tide. If you go at low tide, you can cross over and loop around the island.

This watercolor seascape would look amazing displayed in your living room.

    I love my new print! The quality is great. The memory of my vacation is now in my living room and immediately brightened and warmed the space with its vibrancy. I also appreciated the friendly note from Beth regarding the location of the painting. I would recommend this shop to anyone looking for quality art that’s not mass produced.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a giclee print?

Giclee prints are archival reproductions made from a high-resolution digital scan with special pigment-based inks and 100% cotton paper. The resulting print has incredibly rich, vibrant colors and details that perfectly mirror the transparent qualities of the original watercolor. A giclee should maintain its color integrity for more than 180 years when displayed under glass, out of the sun.

How closely do the prints match the original watercolors?

They are very close!  I do all of my own painting, scanning, and printing right here in my studio. It’s really important to me that the giclee prints match the original paintings as closely as is possible. In fact, I work at it until I can’t tell the difference unless I’m handling the paper. This might take a full day to accomplish.

How accurate are the colors online?

The physical art matches what I see on my computer, but it might look slightly different on yours. For example, colors are a little more muted on my phone than on my Mac. Also keep in mind also that the smaller the image, the sharper it appears online and in person.

Do you offer digital downloads?

My artwork is available as original watercolors and giclee prints. I don’t offer digital files, licensing, or other uses of my art because I can’t control the quality of the final product. It’s really that simple. It’s important that any reproductions maintain the integrity of the original art.

How do I know which size print to purchase?

I recommend taping pieces of computer paper together to create a mockup the same size as your art. You can even tape it to your wall with blue framer’s tape to get a sense of scale.  When you’re thinking about the frame size, you should add an additional 2-4″ on each side to account for the frame width. 

I recommend this technique for gallery walls as well.

I’m happy to help walk you through this process – just contact me.

Do you offer custom framing?

I don’t provide framing services myself, but I’m happy to make suggestions. Most of my prints are ready to slip into a standard sized frame (with or without a mat). It’s generally best if the person(s) who will be living with the frame participate in the selection.

Do you have an open studio?

I wish! My studio is pretty small, so the best place to view my art is online. I include inspiration photos to help you visualize art in your home.

Can I make changes to my order?

Possibly – please contact me immediately to see if your order has already been processed.
