MEMORIES OF PAINTING AT THE COAST
8 x 6
At Rocky Creek, painters have gathered to join Erik Sandgren in his annual coast paint-out. This is a classic place to paint rocks and breaking waves. Most years, the wind howls, but today it is calm. Even so, the waves still break with regular beauty.
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.
