Point Judith Out
36 x 36 inches
acrylic and mixed media on gallery wrap canvas
The coasts of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts are known for their summertime vacation locations. This whimsical painting is an abstracted landscape inspired by the kind of satellite imagery seen on the Google Earth and the historical inevitabilities that made this coastline so well known. Abstractly pictured here are the southern coast of Connecticut, Montaulk Point, Gallilee and Newport, Rhode Island, Martha's Vinyard, parts of the Cape and the north point of Block Island. Reflected here are the 17th century whaling industry, sixteenth century explorers, the 19th century heyday of the Newport elite as well as all of our current day vacation homes, the ferry route to Block Island, our highway to the Cape - Route 95 and all that lies inbetween.
This painting is an abstracted landscape inspired by the kind of satellite imagery seen on the Google Earth and NASA websites.
