This painting was inspired by Eagle Head, Manchester Massachusetts, High Tide, 1870, a painting by Winslow Homer housed by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The modern painting was part of a suite of works inspired by the New England coastal landscapes of Winslow Homer, painted by Hillary Holmes. After a detailed study of the classic work by Homer, this painting was created with a modern interpretation, enhanced color palette, and a mix of mark making and intuitive brushwork.

Homer's rendition of Eagle Head is one of his earliest works focusing on coastal scenes after his time spent as an illustrator, providing scenes from the fronts of the Civil War. During this period, the 1870's, Homer began to focus on the natural environments and forces surrounding mankind, rather than the actions of mankind in it's environments. Spending time in Gloucester, and northern Massachusetts, the artist found serenity and thoughtfulness in the vistas of the coast.

As a resident of the North Shore, and a lover of this beach in particular, this painting began my journey through the work of this American master. Through this project I looked through Homer's eyes at scenes that are familiar to me. I was able to gain a better understanding of his composition choices, color palettes, and mood used in his coastal works. This was an opportunity for me to create a new suite of work, while at the same time developing my skill and also learning from the work of this artist from another era.
