The Sentinel Series
This is a series of small plein air paintings of rocks around the perimeter of a pocket beach on a small island in Casco Bay. As this series has evolved over time, I find my reaction to the rocks has changed, like a deepening friendship where a growing appreciation of strength of character overrides original impressions based on appearance alone. Once submerged by ocean and ice, they now sit on the edge of the island, fully exposed at low tide and almost completely covered at high tide, standing guard for a bit of captured sand along the otherwise steep and rugged shore.
