Description of Rock of Ages, (Acadia, Maine)

When I See Boulders, Rocks And Rubble Strewn About I Know That A Glacier Has Been There, And That Tells Me That These Rocks Are Old, Ancient, And Have Seen Tens Of Thousands Of Years. They Come From Somewhere Else, Moved There By The Incredible Forces Of Nature, Ice And Heat. There They Lie Just Where Fate Has Deposited Them, Century After Century, Season Upon Season, High Tide-Low Tide, Day After Day. What Have They Seen? What Do They Know? How Do They Survive Storm And Sun, Drought And Deluge? And Here We Are, Deposited Just Where Providence Has Placed Us. What Have We Seen? What Do We Know? How Do We Survive Storm And Sun, Drought And Deluge? Perhaps The Rocks Can Tell Us. Acrylic On Linen, Unframed, Sealed With An Archival Varnish, Signed lower right
