Willard’s Quarry

December 27, 2008

Ever wonder where all that red rock came from that so many of the older Burlington buildings are made from? Well, a lot of it came right out of a quarry here in the south end. When you are up there under all that calcium quartzite (at least I think that’s what it is), it feels like Sedona– especially on a warm day. And I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a different climate zone.

A painting from my “quarry series” (click on image for better clarity).

Some very nice folks commissioned this piece, and I am so happy to say that it was a wonderful experience. I painted/drew/collaged 10 or more pieces, and the site is worthy of more.
