Bass Light - Maine Series

Bass Lighthouse is located on Mount Desert Island Maine, a lovely rocky wooded area of the island (there are mountainous parts that resemble a desert, hence the name). Last summer we trekked around this area. I was not sketching then, only photographing. This view has been represented many times in many mediums. Here is my rendition. As I sit in our Maine house last weekend, I decided to do a Maine series.

Sandy,
This is really fabulous - from the house and tree on the top to the water at the bottom left. I hope we are going to see a whole series. Please share!

Wonderful work Sandy! This is inspiring...to write a movie script or a novel; the rocky coast, the cold water, the glorious views?
