Taylor Point Jamestown Painting, 20″ x 24″, Oil on Canvas, 2015
by Charles C. Clear III
Taylor Point in Jamestown is one of Rhode Island’s many hidden gems. It’s a promontory north of Potters Cove and it’s nestled right below the Newport Bridge. The rocky outcropping offers spectacular views of the Bridge, the Bay, Coasters Harbor Island, and the Naval War College. To reach the overlook, first you must travel a narrow shady path that weaves through a tangle of overgrown trees, vines, and brush. Your anticipation builds as you draw closer, and soon the leaves part, and the sight of sailboats on the sunlit Bay beckons.
My inspiration for this Seascape Painting, and the reason that I chose this view of Taylor Point, is to capture that moment – that anticipation – when you know that Beauty is just moments away.
