|"Hole in the Wall" Second Beach 9x12 oil on panel $450|
It was a perfect day on the beach in LaPush, Washington so I stayed till late afternoon. This is my second painting of the day looking south down the beach.
|Help from the crow!|
The paper surrounding the painting is protection for the frame that I mounted the panel in. I find it easier to pre-mount the panels into the floater frames and then wrap them for painting competitions like Paint the Peninsula. That way when I'm done painting the wrapping is easily removed and the painting can be hung for judging.
This photo also shows the "help" I received from a crow when I set the painting on a driftwood log and moved down the beach to set up for another scene. Probably thinking it was something tasty to eat, all he got was a beak full of paint! ...Then left me a nice wing swipe through the freshly rendered surf.
