Restless sea meets imperious granite ledge in a Downeast section of Acadia National Park, Maine. The dark sky was a special bonus to this artist.
Not every day is sunny in Maine, and a glowering sky can be as interesting and intoxicating as a sunset, at least for the artist. Schoodic Peninsula is part of Acadia National Park but is a separate unit farther Downeast, near Winter Harbor. The Point itself is one of those spots on the Earth where a person might receive a dose of vital energy and go away with renewed strength of purpose. Certainly the view toward Mount Desert Island helps to put the busy tourist traffic around Bar Harbor in perspective.
I painted quickly from my own reference materials, using a palette knife and a brush to sculpt the picture out of a dark blue-green toned canvas. I drew on my many visits to Schoodic Point to try to communicate how I feel about that place, its bare forbidding rocks, and the way the sea meets the shore in a restless fashion. The unstoppable force meets the immovable object, and splendor results.
