“Ciff Fall”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.
The last time I painted this view was November, just after the Hurricane. The notch in the cliffs had just started showing itself. In an earlier painting from January 2012 the notch was not visible. With all the heavy storms we have had recently, the ocean has consumed 30 to 50 feet of cliffs and dunes in most areas along the south facing shore line. This part of the cliff jutting out is made up of a stronger, more cement-like material than the surrounding cliffs which are clay. The ocean should probably be right up to where the notch is, if it were to follow the shore line on either side. The big chunks just in front of the “column” part were cut down during last week’s storm. One or two more strong ocean disturbances will probably take the rest down soon…
