This painting was inspired by a camping trip to Acadia National Park in Maine. What amazed me most about Acadia was the variety of ecosystems that existed on one island. From sandy beach to rocky coastline, pine forest, deciduous forest, and bald mountaintops, Mount Desert Island just seemed to have it all. To show the expansiveness of the landscape I decided to do a panoramic scene. The kind of view we would experience if we could have a window into Acadia.
