This scene is natures way of saying, slow down and enjoy . . .
Foreside Cove painting (oil pastel, 4×6) is of an inlet that is located at the end of our street in Maine – such a beautiful place. If you look to the back of the scene the opening between the two slices of land – that’s leads you to the open ocean. When the tide was out the water, hitting the rocks, gets sucked out almost 20 – 30 yards so far in fact you can walk all the way out on sand and small pebbles. AND, when the tide was out you’d see evidence of clams just under the sand by the little spurts of water shooting out of the sand every now and then. We couldn’t go clamming though, it was illegal without a license. Gosh I loved it there.
The bank of rocks up and down the beach along this Cove is made up of large slabs of slanting rocks/boulders. The further up the coast of Maine the slabs take on shades of gray, than the ones around where I lived – they were more of tans, rusts and beige colors.
The oil pastel painting was done on Strathmore Pastel Paper – I rarely use this paper because it leaves checks and takes a tremendous amount of oil pastel paint to fill them in. But, this is a study and I have lots of this stuff – so I figured it was a good way to start clearing my supply.
Enjoy a little taste of Maine ~
