Rocks, rocks, and more rocks...
Painting # 1 is called,
"Delightful Day" and was inspired by an early morning visit to Kettle
Just for the fun of it, I searched the internet to see if I could come up with any interesting tidbits about the rocks in the cove. I came across a blog post called, "Skipping Stones at Kettle Cove". The author wrote about how the rocks look like petrified wood but "are really ocean bottom rock split by stretched bands of quartz".
Painting # 2 is called, "Playful Day" and was
inspired by the energetic rocks near the Lobster Shack at Two Lights in
The rocks in this area were formed 420 million years ago. That period of time is known at the Silurian Period.
Now for a bit of geology from maine.gov...
"The layers of sediment that accumulated in that Silurian ocean are preserved in the rocks at Two Lights as light gray, massive quartzite and dark gray phyllite layers. The quartzite layers were originally sand or silt beds, and the phyllite layers were originally clay or mud beds. As the layers accumulated one on the other, some were deposited individually with sharp boundaries between them, and others were deposited as mixed masses in graded beds that change gradually from the bottom to the top of the layer."
Painting #3 is called,
"Luminous Day" and was inspired by the late afternoon light on the
cliff walk at Prouts Neck in
