The Great Anemone Cave

Oil on Panel, 12"x16"
On a threatening and misty day in Acadia National Park, I stopped at Schooner Head Overlook and hiked down the trail to the rocks below. From the trail, one would not have known the cave exists until you climb down on the rocky shelf below. I found a perfect vantage point and before I was finished painting, the water was lapping at my feet! At low tide the cave is accessible, but entry is discouraged due to the delicate wildlife environment and the endangered anemone that exist there!
