"Rhythm of the Land and Sea"
Oil on Canvas 40" x 60"

"For years I have enjoyed the drama of a place near Lunenburg, Nova Scotia called The Ovens. There is some interesting history that goes along with the place. But what grabs me is the precariously tilted layers of rock that hang above the pounding surf in great cliffs undercut with caves that thud and thunder like cannons firing with each wave. The pounding of the waves against the back of these sea caves can be heard many miles out at sea.

The place is privately owned and has a wonderful trail that winds its way along the edge of the cliffs. This painting is composed from two watercolors that I did on location in 1998. There are other influences as well, but most especially the painting is shaded by the work of Frederick Edwin Church along the Maine Coast in the third quarter of the 1800s. "
