Ack’s Hurricanes Earl & Irene
Moor’s End Farm, Nantucket, MA
Moor’s End Farm, on Polpis Road is a family owned enterprise with many greenhouses, sheds, stands, and outbuildings, all providing intriguing subjects. The piece, inspired by Andrew Wyeth’s work, was close to completion when high winds of the oncoming before Hurricane Earl on 8/25/10 nearly blew over my easel. I was able to finish the work the following year just prior to similar gusts before Hurricane Irene on 8/28/11.
