A week ago I was one of 20 painters who boarded two boats and headed out to Hurricane Island. We spent the day painting works that will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for Hurricane Island Outward Bound School on August 22. It was my first time on the island, and I was floored by how beautiful it was. The boat ride approaching the island was beautiful, as well as the views we had as we explored looking for painting locations. This was painted on the south side, looking just south of Vinalhaven. Two Bush Island is only an island at high tide. As the tide dropped rocks and seaweed connected it to where I was standing, and made for a much different scene.
