Tuesday 207

painting by Jessica Stammen

Sundog & Surf, Higgins Beach

About this painting: Surfing in Maine isn’t for the faint of heart because the best waves happen in the winter and spring when both air and water temperatures are frigid. In this painting a sundog, an atmospheric phenomenon caused when ice crystals diffract light, appeared in the sky as my friend Sharon headed out for a session at Higgins Beach.
