WIP - Coming in For a Landing - Complete

Helen Shideler Coming in For a Landing So, for the past two months I have been obsessed with poured paintings.  I have many on the go - and a few recently completed.  This painting is a result of a road trip to Bar Harbour Maine (two summers ago - but don't tell) - one of my favourite tourist traps weekend getaways. I love this place and all the trappings that go with it - and Acadia National Park - a first rate fabulous place...humbling place with its incredible views, beaches, gulls and trails! We went there on a photo shoot,  um... actually I went there on a photo shoot.  My incredibly patient husband humoured me - and actually flushed out a few sea gulls for me.  Now I know what you must be thinking.  You live on the East Coast and you have to go for a weekend getaway to take photos of gulls?  Yes, for two reasons. I have to make an event of the photo shoot or it may not happen. Coming from the East Coast of Canada we take them for granted.  And by making a trip out of it, I had three days to focus on my target.

I knew in order to get what I was looking for it really meant going a road trip!
