Shale, Stone and SeaSave Favorites
This painting is one of a series I did based on the west coast of Newfoundland, (now called Newfoundland and Labrador), Canada's most eastern province. The area on the west coast of the province is named Gros Morne, a world famous national park, with fjords, and many natural wonders. The site of this particular image is known as Baker's Brook, but it is no brook! Standing on the shore there, one looks out onto the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It was early spring then, well before the tourist season. There was a chill in the air, and silence - except for the occasional gull and seabird. A good time to reflect on the powers of nature. A very humbling experience.
