Cape May Threatened

Cape May Threatened



Susan and I were just starting up the Garden State Parkway when I looked over at the wetlands/ back bay/ marsh that separates Wildwood and the mainland of New Jersey. The sky was beautiful and blue and the wetlands were that winter beige color; but there was one enormous cloud hanging over the earth, isolated and threatening.

My aim was to capture the enormous, flat landscape of the Cape May salt marshes and the strange single rain cloud. This is the largest painting that I’ve done in a few years.
