Passing Through, Purgatory Chasm

by Stephen Sengebush

An unexpected stop

On my way back from Rhode Island, just off of 146 south from Worcester I stopped in at a small state reservation home to a unique glacial ravine called Purgatory Chasm.  A short scramble through rocks leads into the deep divide, where pools of shadow occasionally give way to dancing sunlight.  I stationed myself in a likely painting spot and began to sketch the variety of interesting shapes of cliff bands and tumbled scree.  My eyes adjusted and I marveled at the reds of fallen pine needles casting purple bounce lights into the deep teal-greens of the rock.

Passing Through, Purgatory Chasm” is an original oil painting, 15″x11,” oil on stretched canvas, and mounted in a rustic black wood frame
