"Stormy Seas" La Push, seascape by Robin Weiss

Back to my series of ocean scenes from La Push, Washington. This was done from a photograph taken on location. I have tried to paint in conditions like this and it is no fun. You end up getting more sand on your canvas than paint!  I did try and limit my time for execution which gives it a little more of a PA feeling....I hope..This view of James Island is from  Rialto beach.
8x12 oil on panel

 You do have to be careful when you are on the beach at the Washington coast in the winter time...Here is a nice picture of my wife posing to have her photo taken.....


The rogue wave came fast and furiously but fortunately did not wash my poor wife out to sea.....however it was a long, rather damp walk back to the cabin....






The rubber boots didn't help much....maybe a deep sea diving suit with helmet .....=]   Love you Honey...
