Surfers come up and down the hill from the beach. They are fortified for the cold water in wetsuits and hoods, looking quite seal-like as they sit atop their boards. In this getup, the rain matters not at all. When I arrive, they are clustered behind the break at the center of the beach. They all seem to agree on where the best waves are, and when the tide shifts, they shift together, with the synchronicity of a flock of birds.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
