Rockweed at Hiram Blake

At low tide, the granite shores of coastal Maine are colored with rockweed's sienna hues. In this painting of Hiram Blake Camp on Cape Rosier in Penobscot Bay, the rock is slick with weed which trails out onto the sea's surface, blurring the line between water and stone. Well-appointed cabins are tucked into the woods and blended into the landscape, situated so that they embrace the broad bay view. This is a restorative place, a place to feed the soul.
