Description of Jones Cove Morning

One Of The Interesting Things About Painting Outdoors Is That You Look At One Place For Several Hours At A Time. Most Of Us Would Never Slow Down That Much Or Have That Much Time To Simply Observe One Place For Hours At A Time. But That’s What You Do When You Paint, You Observe The Changes A Place Goes Through As Time Passes. This Piece Was Created Over Several Days, Each Day At The Same Time, But The Weather Was A Little Different Each Day, Different Clouds, Different Patterns In The Water, The Tide Encroaching A Little Sooner Each Day. What’s In The Painting Are The Best, Most Beautiful Moments Each Day Had To Offer. By Compiling And Including The Most Beautiful Moments In The Painting, I Am Able To Share With You The True Beauty Of The Place Not At Just One Moment In Time But Over A Span Of Time. That’s Something Only A Painting Can Do. The Mountain Seen Here Is Cadillac Mountain. It Has Long Been Noted That The Rising Sun Touches The Slopes Of Cadillac Mountain Before Any Other Place In The United States. In Fact, Native People Who Have Called This Area Home For Thousands Of Years Called Themselves Wabanaki, Meaning “People Of The Dawn.” At 1,530 Feet, Cadillac Is The Highest Point Along The North Atlantic Seaboard And Officially Catches North America’S First Light From October 7 To March 6.
