From a Morning Hike

TM9450 From a Morning Hike 9×9 oil on paper

It’s a roughed-up piece of geology, battered by winter and tides, but that’s part of what makes Quoddy Head State Park in Maine so special. The other thing that intrigues me is the color banding of red, maroon, and black, all folded and layered. In this little painting, the iron-rich reddish layer is exposed, while the broken bits of the black, volcanic layer show near the bottom. Painted on a slightly larger piece of watercolor paper, the 9×9″ painting is big enough to allow for quite a bit of detail. Enjoy.
