Bass Harbor Rocks
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Two kids standing on the rocks near the Bass Harbor Head light. This painting was done on site on a warm summer day in August. In the foreground are granite boulders forming the shore line of the Maine coast. This is in the Acadia National Park. The two figures in the scene are my children Nick and Katie. This is a place they have come to know very well over the many years they have vacationed in Maine. The rocks are painted in burnt umber, burnt Siena cerulean blue, Payne�s grey and white. On the right side of the painting at the top of the cliff are the beginnings of a pine forest that goes for miles. Peaking out from behind the pines is the famous Bass Harbor lighthouse. The scene gives way to a calm placid blue sea and a bright blue and white summer sky. The clouds are unthreatening and forecast a calm summer day ahead. Many a lobster man has set his or her traps just of this shore line over many, many years.
