Grout pilePosted: June 21, 2013
Today I clambered out onto the rocks at Halibut Point State Park so I could paint the Grout Pile – the mountain of waste granite pieces from the Babson Farm Quarry. Painting out on the rocks was a thrill – cormorants diving in the water and the lobster boats going by (with the occasional waft of diesel fuel). I had planned on setting up my easel but ended up just sitting with my board on my lap. It wouldn’t have been a pretty sight if the wind blew over the easel and knocked my sable brushes into the crevasses between the granite.
