SANDY BEACH PLEIN AIR MORNING


Surf was minuscule, but I wasn't about to go back home.
Traded my board for my paints and had a beautiful morning by the sea instead.

IT's THE LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT


I spent many years painting "Mini Hawaii" scenes.
Most were 6x6 or 8x8 in size, some on slippery Ampersand Gessobord, others on mounted canvas. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but one positive is that the smaller size kept me painting numerous assorted scenes, and gave me experience without having to commit to a larger size until I felt more comfortable with the subject and technique. Looking back, I love my many mini's and the training and understanding they gave me.

BEAUTY IN THE BEAST


Dean came up with the name of this painting before it was ever created, so I knew I needed to paint a wave that would live up to it. Luckily, surfing Sandy's, I've learned a thing or two about treacherous waves.

What's the compliment of orange? Blue.
