One of my favorite places – the tip of Campobello Island. Who couldn’t fall in love with the wide open spaces, the smell of the sea, and the magnificently complex and colorful ancient mountains that rim the Atlantic? As an artist, this place sets my imagination free – the wild, brilliantly indian yellow lichens on the rocks, the ribbons of reddish granite, the puzzle of fractures – is it real? Yes. Is it also abstract? yes. Maybe I should paint it both ways….stay tuned.
