Switching locations now to one of my favorite places to paint, the Newport Back Bay Estuary. In 8th grade I lived across the street and a block away, west of this beautiful place. Back then, there were no housing developments at the edge of the cliffs, nor on the east side of the bay, which is now home to many beautiful neighborhoods.
Also, at that time, there was no road to skirt the bay, providing beautiful views to visitors as there is now, nor a conservancy dedicated to protecting this wonderful local resource and nature preserve. How lucky we are today, for those foresightful people who knew that this treasure needed protection. Thanks to them this is a refuge not only for wildlife but for anyone wishing for a breath of solitude in the midst of a busy life.
