Laughing gulls in surf oil 24 x 36''

My latest painting shows laughing Gulls in Surf, suitably titled Laughing gulls in Surf! I must come up with a better title! Taking Paula's good advice I refuse to apologize for another wave/gull painting. I have so much fun painting the ocean!

The Lovers. 12 x 16 oil

The late afternoon light was soft and mellow, the perfect setting for a romantic sail. Normally the skipjack is crammed with tourists, but on this occasion it was just the captain and this couple. I wonder If he proposed before the sun dipped behind the trees.

Here's another small portrait of "Jimmy", our resident Great Blue Heron.
