Beach party 24 x 48'' oil ( White Ibises) SOLD


These guys turned up several times during a recent visit to Bonita Springs Beach. They were not at all concerned about the waves breaking over them.I spent hours running up and down the beach following them as they waded around in the surf..
I have just heard that this painting has been accepted for the "Birds In Art" Exhibition. I am thrilled!

This beach piece is my favorite so far. I love the way you capture the various colors of the waves juxtaposed to the ibises. These scenes remind me of the beauty found along South Carolina's beaches. You are a true master!

Like Vernon says, you are a true master and I derive inspiration from both your work and his.

Have to agree with everyone so far Matthew, stunning painting! Everything working so well and with such movement flowing through the work - can't wait to see the original.
