The weight of a stone

 A painting inspired by a beautiful hike on a recent trip to Newfoundland.

This curious rock formation is found at the summit in Butter Pot Park and is approximately 600 million years old. During the last glaciation approximately 10 thousand years ago, great sheets of ice scraped the land, gouging out river valleys, dragging boulders and thus changing the landscape. When the climate changed and the weather became warmer, the ice began to melt and retreat. As it did, huge boulders were deposited along the way.
