By The Coast - SOLD


Acrylic on 9x12 canvas sheet
Available through DPW gallery/auction

This was done back in January of 2010 and I liked how the house sits, off to the side, but near the coastline. You can actually see the wave breaks coming into shore. Can't you just imagine being in that house, the sound of the ocean always in the background. Or sitting out on maybe the front porch, watching the waves, the ocean, smelling the salt scent of the water, maybe hearing the gulls calling out.

I had quite a bit of fun putting the tall grasses in the foreground - good old fan brush! And I like their sort of whimsical feel in comparison to the more direct lines of the house. The vertical lines of the grass is offset by the horizontal lines of the house, horizon & sky. I think maybe it gives the whole scene a sense of balance.
