Olmsted Associated Park:Acadia Natl' Park (Seawall), Mt. Desert Island, Maine
Over the years, I have traveled to Maine to see, study, paint the the coastal Maine landscape and seascape - specifically Acadia National Park. This painting depicts a nostalgic scene of a young boy skipping stones across the water - at the Acadia "seawall". Countless "plein air" paintings, studies and even, photos went into the conception of this idea...to get the lay of the land and sea "right" - and - to evoke the sense of color and feeling of being at the seawall itself. This painting was completed in September of 2022.
