My plein air setup in Kennebunkport.

In 1991 I photographed two pages of my book, Beach Ball Left Right (Holiday House 1992), at this location in Kennebunkport, Maine, on amazon HERE. The late Chris Stavros was always here at this location, always painting the same scene and always chatting with people passing by more than painting. He was in his eighties, and a perfect subject to include in my book, the flying journey of a beach ball that taught left and right to young readers.
