Our stay in Hadley Point on Mt. Desert Island in Maine was unique in that I had not previously seen all of the submerged boulders at low tide that reside in Frenchman’s Bay nearing the Narrows. You don’t see them at high tide, but suddenly they become exposed and their numbers grow as the tide recedes. They appear as the backs of hippopotamus or water buffalo …but really, I think they are glacial erratics. A fun scene, which I will be painting again !
This small plein air watercolor was finished by 8:30 in the morning, from the balcony of our motel room. How convenient to have this view, which I have painted before, and unhappily lost the painting. (See October 2014 post).The sunrise was quite vivid before I began, and as if faded, I tried to quickly catch up before it disappeared entirely !
