Preview Piece Two

September 4, 2013 § 2 Comments

I promised a preview of my show that opens Friday and here is part two.

Whaleshead Beach, Brookings, OR

Whaleshead Beach II

  We had some brutal smoke from wildfires this year (we get it every summer but this year was the worst since 1987 apparently) and many of us cut out and head for the coast when it gets bad. The valley I live in is surrounded by amazing wild lands, when they burn, the smoke gets trapped and we choke til the wind changes or it rains – which can take weeks.  Anyway, this lovely day at the beach was made especially blissful because it was an escape.  Sunny, breezy, warm and cool at the same time.  ahhh.  So nice.  Painted on site en plein air, the breeze blew bits of sand that are stuck in the paint.  I love this.  It could never be faked and I’d never want to take it out.  It’s an important part of the painting.  Part of the experience. This piece measures 16″ x 20″.
