Turning at an angle on the beach, the same tranquil morning, a different line of wooden posts and the waves washing rhythmically on the shore. I was getting chilly, but was busy painting and only noticed when I had finished how cold I had become!
The beach was busy, but I was able to find a place in the shade of the hillside. There were some curious kids who enjoyed watching the start of my painting before they had to leave for the day. I chose to include a few figures in this painting to try to infer how large the rocks are on this coast.
I place my wet paintings in the back window of our car when I am traveling so that they can dry. This painting was sitting in the back when Beth walked by and saw it. It was Beth’s birthday and she recognized the place along the Oregon coast where it was painted. She bought it and took it home. Happy Birthday Beth and I hope that you are still enjoying your painting!
