Heat Rising on Brier Island

This painting, Heat Rising on Brier Island, was painted at the farthest western tip of the island where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bay of Fundy.
It was mid August which usually brings moderate temperatures, but this summer’s heat has been intense all over the world, even here.

The cool ocean in the distance turns the humid land air into fog patches over the water. This adds to the otherworldly quality of the island. Many visitors come from all over the world to whale watch from boats moored on the other side of the tiny island. But each day only a handful of cars venture down the gravel road that leads to the rocky, curved beach that is Pond Cove.
