"The Ovens"
Oil on Canvas 38" x 28"

"Dramatic cliffs of The Ovens overhanging the sea always enthuse me when I think about doing a painting of them. The Ovens has been a favorite destination on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. These cliffs are undercut with sea caves. Waves roll into the caves and thunder like cannonfire when they reach the back of the openings. One time my wife and I took a zodiac boat into one of the caves. It was a little unnerving but thrilling!"
