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!

Matthew, once again your painting dazzles the viewer with a beautiful composition and wondrous light. Bravo! I know how you feel about getting stuck on a title for a piece...best luck with that. I'm sure you'll think of something unique and fitting.

Oh my goodness! What a fantastic painting. Your mastery of water is incredible. Would love to see you do some progress shots of a water/surf painting sometime.

Thank you both for making my day!! What fantastic comments.
Kelly, I promise I will do progress shots of my next large surf painting. Colette, I have come up with the title" Cresting the surf" Not my best, but I struggled for hours to come up with that. I find painting a lot easier than finding the title
