|"September Squall Over Mt. Desert", Oil on Linen 28" x 44"|
For years I have wanted to paint the view from Islesford to Mt. Desert. I had an exciting time last fall painting on Islesford. One day it was very blustery and all of a sudden the sky started to darken and this wild squall descended upon us. I wanted to capture the squall as it moved in on this glorious day. In minutes everything was grey and wet. Below is my initial block in.

In the sky I wanted to capture the layers of atmosphere and the way the clouds spilled over from one to another. It was a bit of a balance between the impending storm and the gorgeous day that was diminishing every second.
