Fire control towerPosted: June 20, 2013
Granite. It’s difficult not to have it in everything I paint and sketch in Rockport. Cape Ann granite was quarried in this area and used in the construction of many famous buildings including the Statue of Liberty. There’s a Granite Street, a Granite Savings Bank and huge chunks of granite forming walls wherever you go. This morning I painted at the granite quarry at Halibut State Park for a second time, this time facing the spot I painted a few days ago. From the 60 ft fire control tower you can apparently see as far as Maine.
