Art inspired by the Renaissance, Celtic knots, fantasy art, and storybooks. I create traditional paintings, digital art and photograph knights, fair maidens, fairies, bagpipers, flowers and a few meadows too.
This photograph is called "The Many Layers" for a reason. There are at least five layers here, starting with the pink granite (very common in Maine and at Acadia National Park), followed by gray rock, then dark brown rock (which usually has something growing on it), the seaweed, and then the ocean. It is quite typical to see this here.
There is also a little plant on the left peaking through the rocks, the one thing that helps the composition.
Maine is a state that is part of my past (and somewhat part of my present and future). I also lived in a small coastal town that was empty of tourists by autumn and when only two restaurants stayed open during the rest of the year. Everyone knew everyone else, and the community was tight and helpful.
The ocean in Maine is so cold that on hot days it is like natural air conditioning, so brisk hiking along the coastline becomes possible.
