Morning on Otter Point, another recent painting from Acadia:
A Facebook friend posted the Church painting above, right, Coast Scene, Mount Desert – 1863 and I immediately dug into my archives and found an image of mine from a few years back from about the same vantage point. Naturally the tide, weather and stature of the artist differ but the connection is somewhat compelling.

The Rule of Three:
OK, Generally we are dividing the picture plane up into three cases:
Case 1: Direct Light
Case 2: Turning surface
Case 3: Shadow
