"Mt Desert Narrows"

Acadia National Park

Watercolor painting of golden grasses and blue ocean cove on MDI, Maine

"Great Head" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

Golden grasses and perfectly still cerulean blue ocean welcome you to Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park. Mt Desert Narrows is located just over the Thompson Island Bridge that brings you to MDI. If you know the area, it's across the road (Rt 3) from King's Creek.

Part of what draws you in is the way the grasses recede from the shore down into the water until they are covered by the tide. Then your eye moves out toward Trenton on the distant shore. This is one of my favorite views on MDI. I miss driving by on the way to work each day!
