View from Fort Hill, oil on canvas 12 x 36
The view from the top of Fort Hill in Eastham on Cape Cod. I have written an essay on this view (see sidebar) which articulates my feeling for the special qualities of this place, both historically and spiritually. There are walking trails all through this property which belongs to the National Seashore, but I seldom walk it. I like to keep it whole and a little distant, as if it can only hold its power from this perspective.
