A color palette from York, Maine

Seashells on a picture ledge.

Hydrangea blossoms in my mother’s garden.

A stone wall decorated by nature’s brush.

Stepping stones on the way to the water.

A vision of brilliant textures and colors.

Short Sands at the end of a beach day.

What views have inspired
