This view is from the trail in West Quoddy Park in Maine and it overlooks the ocean with Grand Manan Island in the distance. The weather can get rough as evidenced by these dead pines. I really enjoy painting the weather-beaten texture of the trees. Like the song by Jimi Hendrix, Castles Made of Sand, these trees will "fall into the sea eventually".

This painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished blue edges. It comes ready to  hang.

Getting to Know Jay

Jay Jensen enjoys capturing the unique magic of a dramatic sky or the late afternoon light. He currently lives in Canada and has been influenced by the work of Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth. Jay considers himself a figurative painter, but particularly loves painting ocean views. He does a lot of glazing which make his works even more luminous in person.
