This painting is part of my “Rocks and Water as portrait of life’s journey” series. The composition is meant to illustrate that while we prefer the smooth cool feel of the water, it is our resolve to overcome the rocks that we stumble upon that develops our character. As we resolve to keep stumbling over the obstacles in our path, we inevitably persevere and gain the strength we need to keep going. The rocky shoreline of the New England coast provides the perfect subject matter for this metaphor. I love nothing more than to visit the shoreline along the Northshore and wander along the rocks, dipping my toes into the cool waters of the North Atlantic.
