There’s something magical about watching the sun rise and set.  Maybe it’s the rapid progression of light filling the sky first thing in the morning or watching it fade at nightfall, or maybe it’s just the fact that it makes one aware of how quickly time passes.  Within minutes the flow of sunrise burst into the dawn of a new day.

Although I revel in the sight of the sea, it’s the Maine light that grabs me. The uncluttered skies hint at the smell of brine, mussels, seaweed, lobster, fish, ducks, and birds. Salty marshes, mysterious dunes, or the sea itself inhabit the lower edge of the painting and gently hold the sky and its moods for our contemplation.
