Windblown Gulls

On this rainy afternoon, I completed this painting, "Windblown Gulls". This was from a scene at Rockaway Beach on a stormy day. I began this 16" x 20" painting back in November, and recently got back to it.

Pillar Point II

Today I completed "Pillar Point Wetlands II"- a 16" x 12" painting. It felt good to load up a palette with fresh paint and really get into it. Yesterday I worked with leftovers, and I was not having a good time! It pays to prepare properly.

Next I need to finish the gull painting. As a birder, I always joked about saving gulls for old age because they were difficult to identify. They are difficult to paint well too and I've been procrastinating!

I'm Back! Painting from Pillar Point

I did this 12" x 9" painting today of the "Pillar Point Wetlands" at Princeton Harbor. Meanwhile I have been refining my gull painting, and finishing up my orchid painting.
