A painting executed completely with a palette knife. The surface qualities of these rock strata accentuated by the impasto oil layers. The spot, a huge channel into the earth's crust that leads the eye out to Morte Rock, where the spine of rocks from atop of MorteHoe disappear just below the surface of the waters and present a treacherous and fatal zone for shipping. A much-used spot for wreckers in years gone by.
