Tuesday 207

paintings by Jessica Ives

Artist’s note: Usually I only post one or two small paintings for the 207 feature. Today…well, today there are seven. Enjoy.


Wait For Me


​Polly’s Folly sailing regatta was held on Megunticook Lake last September. A number of vessels, including lasers, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards participated. The light was beautiful; sails and paddles illuminated across the lake. A video of the day can be viewed here.

There is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In or out of ’em, it doesn’t matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that’s the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don’t; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you’re always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you’ve done it there’s always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you’d much better not.
– Spoken by Ratty to Mole in Wind in the Willows a children’s book by Kenneth Grahame


Every Tuesday The Maine will post a new painting by Jessica Ives. These small works, all 4 x 4 inches on cradled birchwood panels, will be concurrently listed for auction on dailypaintworks.com, a fantastic platform designed by artists, for artists. View the auction for any featured painting above or below, including title and media information, by clicking on it.

Tuesday 207 paintings are exclusive to The Maine. They depict the land, the light and the people that make this state a state of wonder. Visit the growing gallery of Tuesday 207 paintings here.

Jessica is the editor of The Maine and writes occasionally as The Outsider.
