September on Block Island 2019

        Walking north from Mansion Beach on Block Island, one comes upon this scene....I had noticed it in the summer and returned to paint it one early morning last week. The wind was formidable and the waves were breaking almost on me! Of course the ferry saved the day!
        This old house I have always loved...across the street from"painted rock"...There was a "soon to be wed" couple there , Dylan and Lily, painting the rock with their wedding date, Sept 21, also mine 45 years ago.  As I worked on this study , I wondered which was harder to do, the rock or the canvas?
