"Soil Capped" By Steve Porter

As I paint, many thoughts run through my mind .. Was the soil always on top of these sea stacks.? Or could  it be that Hundreds of years of vegetation cycles, bird poop and wind blown sand create it.?

  1. I think the sea stacks were once connected to the mainland. Over time erosion separated them. Had you thought of that? :)

  2. Of course. As I said above, was it always there or did it develop over time. I have a fern growing on my roof and peat deposit has developed under it from previous deposits .. add sand and thats all that it needs. Many offshore rock formations have vegetation and some dont.. Just wondering about it..
