Gulls and Rocks

Gulls and Rocks
plein air oil from Monhegan Island, Maine
6" x 8"
25 off of 25
$75.00 + $10. s/h

Sea gulls can be seen dropping shell fish and clams from the air to the rocks below.  This allows them to open the shells.  I guess they're smarter than I thought!  So, if a seagull drops a shell while flying 12 feet up, how fast is the shell moving when it hits the rock?!...sorry, I couldn't resist!  I never did get those high school math problems.  You know, the ones that went something like:  If a train departs from Chicago at 10:00 and another departs from New York at 11:00, how fast will they be going when they meet in Ohio?  Why did we have to figure out the speed of 2 trains when they collided?

Anyway, back to Monhegan Island...

This is out on Lobster Cove.  I guess this ship wreck has been there for decades!

I loved all the cairns.  I built one, too!

Bonjour chère amie,

J'ai beaucoup aimé la petite histoire concernant les goélands... La peinture s'y rapportant est adorable. On sent toute la nature sauvage qui vous entourait lorsque vous l'avait peint.
Une très jolie peinture...
Un grand merci également pour vos magnifiques photos. Cet endroit est très reposant.
Gros bisous
