On The Rocks at Peggy's Cove, NS

© On The Rocks at Peggy's Cove, NS - 11"x14" oil on linen - $175

This past summer we visited Nova Scotia for the first time and ended up at Peggy's Cove one day. I have to say that Nova Scotia has some of the nicest, laid back people I have ever met in my travels. Peggy's Cove was so quaint and filled with history that we had a hard time leaving. Though I didn't get to paint on location, I took a "bazillion" pictures and will use them for reference. I just loved all of the multi-colored lobster trap buoys everywhere!

This is one of those new "soft core" linen panels (sorry I forget who made it at the moment). I wanted to get that right at sea level look so this is the "on my knees" view. 

If you haven't been to Nova Scotia, you have to go. There are just some beautiful coastal views that can't be compared. Here's a link to the Legend of Peggy's Cove and how it got it's name - romantic of course! Peggy of the Cove
