Beach Tide, 6x8 Oil on Gessoboard

I could probably be pretty happy painting the ocean and nothing else. Every day is different--the light, the water, the sand, the birds--it's ever-changing. I was lucky enough to live in Bermuda for a few years, and the light was so bright, the sea so turquoise, the sand so pink. A heavenly place for someone who loves the water. Of course, the winters were very windy and rainy, but I was used to that, because I had lived in the Azores also. Small wonder that I paint water so much.
