Depoe Bay Harbor, oil 12 x 16
Billed as the smallest harbor on the Pacific Coast, this cozy little haven for boats looked just as busy as any other. Fighting the wind, as usual on the coast. My umbrella lifted right out of its holder and nearly skewered another painter. I finished the painting sans umbrella, and it wasn't really that hard. Ah, how we get used to our equipment!
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.
