After dropping off new paintings at Sheldon Fine Art in Newport RI., I spent the next couple days exploring the surf. Both days were stormy and foggy, but the waves were powerful. Although it lacks dramatic lighting, I like the fog. In misty weather, the rocky coast seems more natural and wild. The blue-green color in the rising waves has already inspired new work. I’ve just begun a couple new surf paintings based on these observations. In addition, I’m continuing work on a couple commissions and a forest waterfall.
Its always encouraging to see how my paintings are displayed in a home setting. This painting, while on exhibit at Sheldon Fine Art in Newport RI, was purchased this past season. The new owner was kind enough to send me this image. A close-up of the painting can be viewed on the "New Pieces" page.
