Currently, my biggest project is a painting depicting the surf on the S. shore of Rhode Island. The piece focuses on the surf draining back from among many small rocks and stones. I'm fascinated by the diversity of patterns in the rocks, from Quartz to a variety of Granites. There are so many in the composition however, that I can only work on these for so long before I need to switch to another painting. Therefore ...... its going rather slowly. My plan, is to complete it by the end of August. This painting will be 30x40.
In addition, I completed the painting "Rolling in under the Touch of Sun" 12x36. I plan to place this on the "New Pieces" page shortly.
Other work this week has included a view of Newport Harbor, showing the Pell Bridge in the distance, a portrayal of the bright morning sun through the trees of a forest stream, and a painting of the dawn surf rolling up on the beach (portrait or vertical format) across wet sand. These are three more works I hope to complete by the end of the month. The forest stream painting has been in process for many months now. Obviously, I enjoy jumping around between many paintings. This way, I can relive a hike up a forest stream and walk on the beach at dawn within the space of a couple hours!!
