Bass Rocks is impressive – a stretch of honey and rust-colored rock ledges facing out to the Atlantic on Cape Ann. The constant force of waves and winter ice breaks the rocks into a myriad of sizes and has created a vast, complex geometry of fractures. When you stand on the ledges at high tide or after a storm, the violence of the pounding surf translates into tremors that start at your feet and rise through your whole body. I love it. It’s the energy and exuberance of the place that I try to capture in my paintings from Bass Rocks. Enjoy.
