Storm on the Bay 30 x 30 oil


This painting is a little different. I painted the storm as seen through the window. Kind of "Abstract realism" (If that doesn't sound too pretentious) I have a series of 4 similar paintings planned. The next being leaves under the Ice. Well I had better see what the reaction is to this piece first!
I added a house fly, but I'm not sure whether it adds to the painting or shows my lack of courage.

Personally Matthew, I love it! Always looking for something different from you and now I'm really looking forward to seeing the other abstract paintings you have planned! I think as artists we should challenge ourselves, so very well done with this one.

Matt, this is such a cool idea, it has many possibilities! I look forward to seeing more. Love it!!!
Also, I can't tell you how good it was to see you guy's last week. I hope we can get together again this year.
