Next to Bear River, my favorite place in Nova Scotia is Brier Island. At the end of Gull Rock Road, before you fall into the ocean, fields of wild grasses and wild flowers stretch to water's edge. The plant cycle is gradually creating a thin layer of soil over the rock. You can stand out there and see beautiful ocean in 3 directions including the Bay of Fundy AND the Atlantic Ocean. I've been there many times either camping with friends or painting with artists.
No painting can ever do Brier Island justice, but this one attempts to show the dark blue of the cold ocean waters contrasted with the warm yellow grasses.
