"Nor-Easter" 36 x 48'' oil
Phew, here's a new biggy. I just love painting the ocean. It was hard not to fill the painting with gulls.I spent most of the summer painting this. The focal point of this piece was always the breaking wave. larger gulls kept getting in the way and taking your attention away from the wave.In the end I decided to have a few gullsin the seascape.
This was my mom's beach in July. We had a week of tremendous gales, The sun would break through and drag dark shadows across the seascape. very dramatic.Really blew the cobwebs away.
