In 2003, I was invited to do a number of art shows in several of the coastal towns of Maine. It was my first time on Mt Desert Island and I fell in love with Acadia National Park. I have since spent countless hours wondering along the rocks, watching the interaction between the granite coastline and the rolling ocean waves. It is mesmerizing. I am drawn into the rhythm of the surf and the patterns of the rocks. It is the interplay of the solid and the fluid, the still and the motion that energizes me. It is the influence that each exerts on the other that I endeavor to capture. I hope you can hear the ocean pounding and feel the mist in the breeze.
