At Low Tide

TM8279 At Low Tide 16×16 oil on panel

Painting a place is a way to spend lots of time there, and a wonderful way to see and savor every last detail for days on end. At Low Tide, a view from Campobello Island with Grand Manon in the distance, is one of my favorite places.  I am fascinated by the complex geography and the vast distances exposed at low tide. In this painting, the view is from a (very) slowly disintegrating finger of ancient granite looking toward the acres of exposed seaweed. The bright, gold lichens covering much of the surface of the granite are a familiar feature on the northern coast.
