Commission a Painting

Back to Katahdin | Previous | Next

Emergence, Rocky Pond, Maine
After taking a canoe to the end of the lake, hiking (bush-whacking would be a better word) half an hour to Rocky Pond, I found that I couldn't even see Katahdin. In fact, I could only see the rocks near the shore. May as well paint rocks, then. Time passed; I looked up and there it was: a huge blue shape slowly emerging from the mist. And a moose with her two calves standing in the shallows, peacefully munching among the weeds. I will always remember that morning.
