I remember the sea, and the soft rush of water as it comes ashore. I remember the heaviness of the rocks and the salty dampness of winter seaweed. I feel the coolness of the air and the cry of the gulls.
REEF BAY MORNING EXPERIENCED is an 14 x 18 inch alla prima or wet-on-wet seascape painting with the quiet strength that is part of any peaceful west coast day.

A Sunday seems like a perfect release day for this new work that was completed late in 2012 and right in the heart of the gray that prevails during the short wet winter days. Yet is somehow a hopeful painting, one that fills me with resilience and inner strength against mounting melancholy. This is the kind of creative environment that feeds my creative muse and stills self-doubt with swift observation and quick sure brushstrokes.
