"Spring Clouds" 6 x 8 study

This little study was one of several completed on this great beach day. The rain clouds have traveled east and left their spring cousins to decorate the still cool ocean skies. The days are crisp; but brilliant ; with just enough moisture left over from the storms to set up some neat atmosphere. This study is available for $185 unframed. Call artists for further information at 949-395-2139.

It's been a wild couple of days here at the beach. As the hot front moves off to the east and the low moves in from the north...the ocean hearlds the return of the sea winds with major waves and crashing surf. When I hear the surf pounding the beach at night I know I will be up early to grab my painting gear and head for the beach at first light. Here is "Surf's Up" an 8 x 10 that emerged from these efforts. Available for $185 unframed. Contact artist at 949-395-2139 for further information.

Here is a 9 x 12 study that I did on the beach here in Laguna.   I find that the best view point to paint the ocean is as close as I can get without swimming.  The ocean is reluctant to give up the secrets of her beauty.  You have to watch and listen closely.  This study served to inspire a larger painting and is now available to a new home. The study "Boom" is available for $350 unframed(sold) Contact artist at
